Tottenham pair Nigel Gibbs and Karl Halabi have joined Swansea, it was confirmed on Tuesday afternoon.
Premier League strugglers Swansea appointed Paul Clement as their new manager as they try to climb off the foot of the table and avoid relegation.
The Swans confirmed on their official website that the Spurs duo have also moved to the Liberty Stadium on a permanent basis to work with Clement.
Gibbs will become the assistant coach under Clement, having previously been the assistant head of coach & player development at White Hart Lane.
Halabi has been appointed Swansea’s new head of physical performance and leaves behind his role as physical development coach.

The Welsh club have been keen to oversee a major reshuffle and will be hoping for improved performances on the pitch as a result.
Former Spurs duo Gibbs and Halabi will now be moving up to work with first-team players in a Premier League side, instead of dealing with development players.
Swansea are currently in their sixth season as a top-flight club and have been an established mid-table side during the first five, but are now in serious dangers of facing the drop.
They are currently four points from safety and face a huge game against Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Tuesday night.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club are eyeing a swoop for a Spain international and a first-team player could be part of the deal.
