Potter who has spent seven fruitful years at OFK helping them from the fifth-tier to the Allsvenskan has agreed to move to relegated English Premiership side Swansea City.

Porter 43, was instrumental as Ostersunds reached the second round of the 2017/2018 Europa Cup where they defeated the likes of Galatasary, Zorya, PAOK, and Arsenal at Emirates.

The Solihull-born English-man is known for his knack for sporting talents as he was able to bring non-league players from England, blended it with Africans, Swedish and players from non-football nations like Iraq, Palestine and others.

He brought the likes of Ghanaian players such as David Accam, Samuel Mensah, Isaac Shaze and Thomas Boakye to Sweden whilst he later on also signed Edward Kpodo and Frank Arhin.

Porter will be gunning for the best coach award in the annual FIFA Player of the years award later this year.
