With Chris Hughton’s time at Brighton and Hove Albion coming to an end this week, the Seagulls are now on the hunt for a new manager.
And it looks like they may be tempted to dip into the Football League for their next boss.
The early favourite for the job was Swansea City’s Graham Potter, who has had an impressive first season in South Wales despite operating under difficult circumstances.
But, according to Football Insider, another man attracting their attention is Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder.
Wilder has just led the Blades into the Premier League, earning plenty of admirers along the way and it now looks like Brighton could try and tempt him to the south coast.
So, should Sheffield United fans be worried?
“I’d say little concern.
“Of course, having your manager linked away is never nice but if there’s one man assured of a job for a while it’s Chris Wilder at Sheffield United.
“He’s got every fan’s dream awaiting him next season, I’d be utterly shocked if he suddenly moved to the Amex.”
“I really can’t see this happening.
“Surely, Chris Wilder is as settled as anyone? The scenes I saw of him drunkenly leaving Bramall Lane didn’t reek of a manager likely to be on the move anytime soon.
“Why Brighton? Are they bigger than Sheffield United? Absolutely not, no.
“This is the wrong more by the top flight side, 100%. They’re not going to get any joy here.”
“I wouldn’t be too concerned about this rumour.
“Chris Wilder has already shown that he is loving his time with Sheffield United, and I would be stunned if he even considered Brighton’s interest.
“Why would you walk away from the managerial post after taking the Blades back into the promised land.
“There’s no way this will happen.”
