Chief executive Julian Winter told Swansea' official website: "We are delighted with the appointment of Russell as our new head coach.

The couple proves that they're going strong as they vacation together.The 31-year-old actress and the Coldplay frontman were photographed on vacation in Palma De Mallorca, Spain. Johnson was casually dressed in a floral shirt and shorts with flats and a baseball cap, as she linked arms with Martin. The singer, on his end, rocked a dark t-shirt and black shorts.
"He very much fits the profile of a young and hungry coach who wants to succeed.
"After earning plaudits with Milton Keynes Dons for the attractive, attacking style that he implemented, we quickly realised Russell would be the right person to take us forward.
"He captained Peterborough and Norwich, as well as winning promotion on five separate occasions (as a player), which tells you everything about his leadership qualities and winning mentality."

Last term the Dons finished 13th in Sky Bet League One and only Manchester City and Barcelona had a higher possession percentage in Europe.
Swansea made an official approach for Martin on Friday, a day before the Dons' first game of the season, which angered the Sky Bet League One club.
They lost 5-0 to Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup first round, Martin's final game in charge.
A Dons statement on Saturday read: "MK Dons can confirm that an official approach has been made by Swansea City to speak to Russell Martin regarding their vacant managerial position.
"To our extreme disappointment, this was received less than 24 hours prior to our first competitive fixture of the season.
"To minimise disruption to our players and our match preparation, it was decided that this would be discussed after today's game."
Former Chelsea number two Jody Morris had been a contender for the Swansea job, while QPR assistant boss John Eustace looked poised to take control - before opting to stay at Rangers after holding talks with the Swans.
