Paul Barber has reirerated his enduring message that Graham Potter is happy - and committed long-term - at Albion.

The Seagulls' head coach has been very speculatively linked with managerless Premier League clubs in recent weeks.

Barber, the club's chief executive and deputy chairman, confirmed in the summer that Tottenham had not made contact.

But he can understand why the Albion boss might be attracting attention.

Barber told Sky Sports yesterday: "There is always going to be interest in good people, whether it’s coaches, players or even backroom staff as well.

"We’ve got Graham on a long contract. We like what he’s doing, we want him to be here for a long time to come and I think he’s happy to be here."

The Argus:

Potter and coaches Billy Reid and Bruno showed commitment to the Brighton and Hove community at the weekend by sleeping rough to raise awareness of the city's homeless.
