Swansea City: Premier League 'worth £58m' to economy

Swansea City's first season in the Premier League has generated £58m for the Welsh economy, a new study claims.

An estimated 400 jobs - 340 of them in Swansea - were created or protected by top flight football, according to the research by Cardiff University.

The study was commissioned to look at the economic impact of Premier League status on the city and Wales.

The Swans became the first Welsh club to reach the Premier League in May 2011.

BBC Wales sports reporter Ashleigh Crowter has more.
