Former Celtic midfielder Morten Wieghorst is set to be appointed as number two to fellow Dane Michael Laudrup at Swansea City.

After impressively continuing the Swansea City success story since taking over from Brendan Rodgers at the Liberty Stadium in the summer, Laudrup has moved to strengthen his backroom team after agreeing terms with 41-year-old Wieghorst which will see him give up his position as boss of the Danish under-21side.

Wieghorst played under Laudrup at Brondby, who he joined after leaving Celtic, and has agreed to team up with his former international team-mate again at Swansea. Prior to taking charge of the Danish under-21 side he coached Nordsjaelland to back-to-back Danish Cups.

He will replace Erik Larsen as Laudrup’s assistant with the former assistant moving into a chief scouting role. Alan Curtis will remain in his role as first-team coach.

The move would suggest that Laudrup is close to opening up talks over extending his initial two-year contract at the club, which is due to expire at the end of next season.

He has been linked with potential jobs at Real Madrid and Chelsea on the back of his success at Swansea, which has seen him guide the club to the Capital One Cup final where they will face League Two Bradford City.
