May 18 (Reuters) - Swansea City have parted company with manager Carlos Carvalhal after they were relegated from the Premier League, the Welsh club said on Friday.

The 52-year-old's contract expired at the end of the campaign and Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins said the club had decided to "move in a new direction".

Carvalhal was appointed to succeed Paul Clement last December and oversaw an initial improvement in form, which saw Swansea rise to 13th in the table.

But they failed to pick up a victory in their last nine games of the season and finished third-bottom with 33 points. (Reporting by Hardik Vyas in Bengaluru Editing by Toby Davis)
