Albion have received no approach for Graham Potter – as reports of interest in their head coach resurface.

The Seagulls remain relaxed about the position of their highly-rated boss, who is on a long-term contract.

But The Argus understands they are not at all surprised to see his name being linked again with still managerless Tottenham.

The hunt for a successor to Jose Mourinho in North London appears to have come full circle after several well-known names were ruled out.

There is now a suggestion chairman Daniel Levy will return to his original shortlist.

That is believed to prominently feature both Potter and Erik ten Hag.

Albion expect all managers, at a certain level, who have a good record and good reputation to be coming under scrutiny at Tottenham – or indeed Everton. Potter fits those criteria.

But they continue to have no interest in losing him and are convinced he has no wish to leave.


They have spent the last two years shaping a squad to suit a long-term plan with Potter at the helm and have no wish to change that now Activity in the player marketplace remains quiet and Albion have no current bids in for potential signings.

The Argus understands a report they are interested in Liverpool’s young defender Nat Phillips is wide of the mark.
