GRAHAM Potter has spoken to the media for the first time since a Brighton and Hove Albion player was arrested last week.

Potter stuck to discussing footballing matters during his press conference ahead of Albion's Premier League fixture against Norwich City on Saturday.

It is the first Albion press conference since a player in his 20s was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault at a nightclub in Brighton on October 6.

Albion previously issued a statement confirming that the club was assisting police with an investigation.

Today, Potter gave updates on the Albion squad, discussing injuries and who would be available for the Norwich match.

The Albion player who was arrested earlier this month cannot be named for legal reasons.

He remains on conditional bail until November 3 along with another man in his 40s.

Albion had nothing to add to their existing statement that was released regarding the arrest earlier this month.

At the time, a club spokesman said: "Brighton and Hove Albion are aware that one of its players is assisting police with the investigation of an alleged offence.

"The matter is subject to a legal process and the club is therefore unable to make further comment at this time."
