Paul Clement insists he will be at Swansea next season irrespective of what division the club are in.

Swansea enter the final three matches of the Premier League season two points adrift of safety, with home games against Everton and West Brom and a trip to already relegated Sunderland to come.

When Clement was appointed Swansea head coach at the start of the year, the Welsh club were bottom of the league with only 12 points from 19 games.

Swansea host Everton on Saturday evening hoping to cut the gap on 17th-placed Hull, who host Sunderland in an earlier kick-off.

The game marks the first return of former club captain Ashley Williams to the Liberty Stadium since his £12million switch to Merseyside at the start of the season.

Williams played over 350 games in eight years as Swansea rose through the divisions and into the Premier League.

The Wales captain also led the club to League Cup glory and a place in Europe in 2013, but some Swansea supporters have suggested on social media this week that Williams should be granted an unfriendly reception on Saturday.

Williams' place had been taken by the increasingly impressive Alfie Mawson, who has progressed into the England Under-21 set-up since completing his #5m move from Barnsley last August.
