Kevin Reeves has returned to Swansea City as our new chief scout.
The former assistant manager, quit the same scouting role at Stoke to sign 2-year, full time contract with the Swans.
Reeves was Brian Flynn's assistant at the club between 2002-2004 and the duo brought in players such as Lee Trundle, Leon Britton, Alan Tate and Izzy Iriekpen who all remain at the club.
Chairman Huw Jenkins was delighted to welcome Reeves back to the club and he said: 'As a club, we are delighted to have secured the services of someone with Kevin's reputation, experience and knowledge of the game,''
'Having worked with Kevin during his time at the Vetch, I know we have the right man for the job. He was well respected and liked by all the players and staff during his time at the club and we are pleased to have him back.
'Kevin will be responsible for all scouting matters for the first team, which includes assisting manager Kenny Jackett with regards to senior recruitment at the club.
It's the latest move to further develop the structure of Swansea City Football Club.
'Everything we do is aimed at strengthening the club on and off the pitch. We are determined to keep pushing this club forward and Kevin Reeves will help us do just that.
'We appointed Gwyn James as Head of Youth Recruitment at the end of last season and Kevin's appointment helps strengthen the structure from junior to senior level.
'We will continue to invest in the structure of the club for its short and long-term future.''
Stoke manager Tony Pullis was dissapointed to see him leave but he wishes him well in the future: 'I brought Kevin to the club and I'm disappointed to be losing such a good worker.
'He's a great lad for whom I've got great respect. We would like to thank him for all his hard work and wish him every success in the future.''
He was appointed as Stoke's chief scout in August 2005 before scouting for Portsmouth after leaving the Swans in 2004 along with Flynn.
