Tony Bloom wants his new boss to serve up entertainment for Albion fans.

But the Seagulls chairman says results are paramount as his side aim to survive and thrive in the Premier League.

Graham Potter is settling in as head coach and making plans for the new season with technical director Dan Ashworth.

The new boss produced a young Swansea City side who played some eye-catching football in the Championship, not least when they gave Manchester City a major scare in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Bloom told The Argus: “Style of play is important. Graham will have his own style of play.

“But the most important thing is to have good performances by the team.

“Good performances get good results.

“If we can have a style that is entertaining for the fans, so much the better.

“But it's about the team and club performing well. Everything comes from there.”

Well-placed sources in South Wales believe Potter was keen on taking exciting young winger Daniel James with him to the Amex.

But James is on his way to Manchester United.

A move by the Seagulls for Swans star Ollie McBurnie would appear more likely.

It is thought the Leeds-born striker, who turns 23 next month, would be available for about £12 million.

McBurnie is 6ft 2in and scored an impressive variety of goals among his 22 in the Championship last term.
