Francesco Guidolin is to remain as Swansea boss after agreeing a new two-year contract with the Premier League club.

Swansea confirmed that Guidolin's deal was ratified at a board meeting on Wednesday.

The 60-year-old Italian took over from a sacked Garry Monk in January on a short-term contract until the end of this season, and has since guided Swansea to Premier League safety by winning seven and drawing three of his 15 games in charge.

Spurs boss warns Leicester City: Excitement can be dangerous for title chances

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has warned Leicester it would be dangerous to assume they have won the title already.

The Foxes need only three points from their three matches left to be crowned Premier League champions and they can complete the fairytale on Sunday with a win at Manchester United.

Even if Leicester drop points at Old Trafford this weekend, the expectation is they will finish the job, with champions scarves on sale in the city and plans in place for a trophy presentation the following week.

Spurs will be watching anxiously ahead of their game at Chelsea on Monday, and Pochettino insists there could yet be a late twist.

"It is difficult to stop the excitement they have now in Leicester. That can be dangerous," the Argentinian said.

"I hope that it is, but we need to win our game and do our job.

"The gap is seven points and there are nine points to play for. It is not easy, it is difficult, but we need to believe.

"The most important thing is not only that Leicester drop points but we need to win our game."

Goalkeeper Victor Valdes is on his way back to Manchester United after having his loan spell at Standard Liege cut short.

The 34-year-old Spaniard joined Belgian club Standard on loan in January having made only two Premier League appearances for United since he moved to Manchester in early 2015.

Valdes helped Standard beat Club Brugge to win the Belgian Cup in March, but Les Rouches have decided to give their younger players more opportunities as the league season draws to a close.

Pulis rooting for Leicester City

West Brom boss Tony Pulis believes Leicester City winning the title would be the biggest shock in football.

Albion's 1-1 draw with Tottenham on Monday means if the Foxes win at Manchester United on Sunday they will take the Premier League crown.

Both Spurs and the Foxes have three games left but Claudio Ranieri's side need just three points for their first-ever top flight trophy.

Pulis said: "Going back a long time ago (Nottingham) Forest got promoted and won the league (in 1978) and the following year won the European Cup. This is as big, if not bigger, because there's a massive divide between teams who have and haven't.

"It's as good as anyone could ever imagine. It's massive, nobody would have believed it.

"If I had to pick one I would love Leicester to do it, it's certainly in their hands now and it's theirs to take. Tottenham I'm sure will try to win the three games if Leicester do slip but we'll see."
