Swansea City have rejected an approach from Brighton to interview manager Graham Potter, according to the Daily Mail.
Potter is the favourite to succeed Chris Hughton, who was sacked yesterday morning after over four years in charge at the AMEX Stadium, despite keeping the club in the Premier League and helping the team reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup this season.
The report states that Brighton have identified Potter as their number one target for the role and were hoping to speak to him to agree terms over the next 24 hours, but Swansea are reluctant to let that happen.
The Swansea boss is thought to be happy at the Liberty Stadium, although the report also states that he sees the chance to work for Brighton as a big opportunity, which means that the move could happen.
Potter was able to guide Swansea to a top-half finish in the Championship this season, following their relegation from the Premier League last term.
This is very interesting news for Swansea fans.
To be honest, I’m a little surprised that Brighton decided to sack Hughton in the first place, given that he was able to keep the club in the Premier League for the second successive season.
Potter is a good manager and has done very well for Swansea in the Championship this season, so losing him now would have to be considered a massive blow for the Swans.
