Graham Potter is set to become Brighton’s new manager as he has informed Swansea City that he wishes to leave the club according to BBC Sport.
The Seagulls have wasted no time at all in appointing a new manager, with Chris Hughton being dismissed from the managerial post on Monday.
Potter doesn’t have any experience in the Premier League, but is seemingly the man they think can take them forward in next year’s campaign.
The 43-year-old has been impressive in his brief spell in management though, after moving to Swansea from Swedish side, Ostersunds FK.
Potter took the Swans to a 10th placed finish in the Championship last season, and since the turn of the year, Swansea have looked like a completely different side, for all of the right reasons.
The report claims that Brighton will be paying Swansea in the region of £2m in compensation to see Potter move to the Amex Stadium in the near future.
Swansea will be hoping to have a new manager in place for next year’s campaign at the earliest of opportunities as they look to start planning for next season.
I’m quite surprised by his willingness to move on.
I understand that Brighton are a Premier League side, but we were really seeing positive signs in the Swansea team since the turn of the year.
He’ll leave a sizeable void at Swansea, and he won’t be easy to replace at all.
