Swansea City have officially been relegated from the Premier League after seven seasons in the top flight.

The Swans’ time amongst the elite has come to an end as they return to the Championship after a seven-year stay in the Premier league.

Their fate was all-but sealed coming into the final day, needing to win, Southampton to lose and a 10-goal swing.

However, no such miracle occurred with Swansea losing at home to Stoke City and Southampton also losing against Manchester City.

Those results meant relegation was officially confirmed for the Swans, who will now get their first taste of Championship football since their promotion in 2011.

And they amidst an ongoing battle between supporters and chairman Huw Jenkins, which saw a protest from fans in today’s home clash with Stoke City.

They also drop down to the second tier looking for a new manager after it was revealed Carlos Carvalhal’s contract will not be renewed.

Club legend Leon Britton has also announced his retirement, and another fan favourite in Angel Rangel will leave the club this summer.
