Frank Burrows yesterday resigned as manager of Swansea City for "personal reasons". The Second Division club have won just two of their 10 League games this season and are one point above the relegation zone.

Burrows took charge at Swansea in March 1991 and guided them to their first Wembley appearance - and victory over Huddersfield - in the 1993/94 Autoglass Trophy. Robin Sharpe, the club's chief executive, said: "Everybody at the ground is deeply shocked at this unexpected announcement."

Leicester City, the First Division leaders, have agreed a pounds 100,000 fee with Ayr United for Frank Rolling, after the French defender, formerly with Strasbourg, completed a month's loan.

Stoke City have confirmed that they will listen to offers for their top scorer, Paul Peschisolido, in order to finance new signings. Birmingham City, whose managing director Karren Brady is married to Peschisolido, have expressed an interest in re-signing the pounds 2m-rated Canadian.
