It will be first management position for Keates, who led Wrexham to FA Trophy victory in 2013 and made more than 150 appearances for the club as captain.

We are delighted to welcome Dean to Wrexham AFC as the club's new permanent manager following his period leading the interim management team. As expected, there was huge interest in the position of Wrexham AFC manager but we believe we have chosen the outstanding candidate to take the Club forward, to match our own aspirations and those of our supporters.

Dean is a man with an excellent pedigree in football, he is someone who knows all about Wrexham AFC and the fans expectations and someone who has a real passion for the Club. We believe has the knowledge, the drive and the determination to bring lasting success to the Club as we build for a successful future.

– John Mills, Wrexham AFC director

Keates will be unveiled as manager at a media conference this afternoon.

Mike van der Hoorn had the best chance for the home side in the first half, before Gylfi Sigurdsson hit the post.

Swansea though remain second from bottom in the Premier League and are without a win since their opening day's win over Burnley.

Elsewhere in League Two Newport lost 3-1 to Plymouth at Rodney Parade.

Plymouth had taken the lead via the penalty spot, before Jon Parkin equalised just after the break.

But another penalty from Graham Carey and a Jordan Slew strike sealed the win for Plymouth.

In the National League, Wrexham beat Bromley 2-1, with goals from Shaun Harrad and Gerry McDonagh.
