Swans pick up PS100m from season.

SWANSEA City's late survival surge earned the club PS103.1million from the Premier League's broadcast and central commercial income, their best return yet from a top-flight campaign.

Paul Clement's side ended the season in 15th position in the final table, with their leapfrogging of Watford and Burnley on the final day earning the Welsh club the thick end of PS4million in merit payments.

Swansea's total payments match their league finish of 15th in terms of where they rank among the top-flight peers, and they are just shy of PS10million better off then bottom club Sunderland.

However, they are PS47.7million worse off than champions Chelsea, who will pick up PS150.8million.

Meanwhile, reported Swansea target Davie Selke will not be making a move to the Liberty Stadium, having joined Hertha Berlin.

The 22-year-old played for RB Leipzig and scored four goals for the Bundesliga side last term.

However, Leipzig - who finished second in the top flight after launching an unexpected assault on the title - have confirmed the Germany Under-21 international has made the move to the capital.
