The takeover of Swansea by an American investment group has been completed.

The American consortium - fronted by Jason Levien and Steve Kaplan - has been in talks over acquiring control of Swansea since last year, with news of the proposed change of ownership emerging in early April.

It is understood that the Americans have acquired around 60 per cent of the Premier League club, who confirmed the completion of the takeover on Sunday morning.

Levien and Kaplan, who both have extensive experience in American sports, must now pass the Football Association's owners' and directors' test before the deal is officially ratified.

The 28-year-old, who moved to France in the January transfer window just six months after arriving from Braga for £5million, scored six goals in 13 matches while on loan.

"His signing is good for the present and the future of the Lille," coach Frederic Antonetti told losc.fr.

"We learned to know and appreciate Eder and am very happy he now belongs to the club.

"He is a centre-forward who did a lot of good in our offence, a warrior, and we needed this profile."

Eder failed to score in 13 appearances for Swansea, only two of which were Premier League starts

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.

Swansea give skipper Williams pre-Euros rest

Wales captain Ashley Williams will not play for Swansea again this season as head coach Francesco Guidolin feels his skipper deserves a pre-Euro 2016 breather.

Williams has played every minute of Swansea's Premier League campaign and missed only seven games during the Welsh club's five seasons in the top flight.

Guidolin's decision will delight Wales manager Chris Coleman, who has acknowledged the amount of football his skipper has played over the last few seasons.

Ash will not play again this season, he needs a break.

He is tired because he has played a lot of games this season and before.

Ash is the skipper, a good player and leader, and he is very important for me and our team.

But it is better for Ash to rest and be prepared for the Euros and for next season.

– Francesco Guidolin
