    As I understand it, the club has not release any names of anyone on their long-list or short-list. The only factual content that we have in this article seems to be "Albion spoke to contenders last week and the quest to replace Oscar is continuing." I suspect anything else is likely to be just speculation or rumour, so I don't feel it's fair for some people above to criticise the club over "the ones that got away" - after all, for all we know the club may never have been considering those names in the first place.
    Back to the quoted factual content, though - my reading of that is that the speaking has now finished, and we're now in the deciding stage (either the club still mulling over what offers to make, or a candidate mulling over or haggling over an offer). Hopefully that means that we'll have our manager announced soon, but personally I'm not building up my hopes on who it is (or dashing my hopes on who it isn't) based on bookies' odds that may or may not be grounded in any inside knowledge.
    Sky Sports is running a story that says, 'Brighton are in talks with Hyypia,' if this is correct, that would suggest that we have not spoken to him in the past weeks. Maybe Bloom has tired of other applicants dragging their heels regarding any offers we might have made, and now Bloom is moving to plan B or C."

First published in Albion

Former Liverpool defender Sami Hyypia is the new favourite to take over as Albion manager.

Hyppia’s odds were slashed to a best-price Evens today as the Seagulls hunt for a successor to Oscar Garcia.

The Finn was being quoted as odds-on with two bookies.

Hyypia was linked with the Albion job last month and is keen to get back into management.

He was dismissed by Bayer Leverkusen two months ago.

Albion spoke to contenders last week and the quest to replace Oscar is continuing.
