Graham Potter says everyone is a winner as Marc Cucurella heads to Chelsea.

The Spanish wing-back has departed for a club record fee whch could exceed £60 million.

In his press conference today, Potter indicated he was not fully expecting the player to go this summer.

But he believes all parties have got a good deal.

The Albion boss said: “We didn’t want to sell him and we didn’t need to sell him.

“At the same time, you understand if a Champions League comes with Champions League resources and finance and the player indicates there is a desire to do it, it is a very difficult for us.

“We have to make sure we get the right fee.

“I think the right fee has been got and it’s another situation where everyone has won.

“The player has got a great opportunity, the selling club have got a good fee and the buying club have got a good player as well.

“So win, win, win all around.

“Marc was a fantastic player for us, a great guy I like him a lot.

“I wish him well and we move forward as a group.”
