Swansea have confirmed that all their current scouting team have been relieved of their duties, with Graham Potter solely in charge of the club’s transfer strategy.
Potter is determined to put his own stamp on the club and has replaced Head of Recruitment Dave Leadbeater with Kyle Macauley, his former assistant manager at Ostersunds.
Leadbeater will be joined by Technical Recruitment scout Ian Henderson, his assistant Ian Roscrow and Bryan Flynn and Gerhard Tremmel who have all been shown the door.
The former two have been at the club since 2010 and 2012 respectively and had been a part of the furniture at the Liberty Stadium.
That has been torn up, with a statement from the club reading, “Graham will decide which areas of the team or squad need strengthening.
“Kyle will identify the key targets, research and study all the available information including scouting reports and data before providing a list to be pursued.”
It’s thought that list is already well underway with Potter having already identified a list of targets. He’ll first assess his players however before beginning business, but it’s certainly looking like it will be a busy pre-season ahead of life in the Championship.
