Graham Potter has emerged as a target for Brighton and Hove Albion to replace manager Chris Hughton, it has been claimed by journalist Dean Jones.
Hughton, who had been in charge at Brighton for four and a half years, was sacked on Monday morning, just a day after Brighton finished their second straight season in the Premier League in 17th, one place and two points clear of the relegation zone.
It seems that the South coast side have already identified one target to replace Hughton, with journalist Dean Jones reporting on Twitter that “wheels are already in motion” for a move to bring in Potter from the Liberty Stadium.
Brighton manager search: Hearing wheels are already in motion for Swansea's Graham Potter

Potter has had an impressive first season in English football with The Swans, with some impressive second half of the season performances under Potter earning The Swans a 10th place finish in their first season back in the Championship following relegation from the Premier League.
This could be a big loss for Swansea.
Following a steady if underwhelming start to life back in the second tier, Swansea showed plenty of promise in the second half of the season, and it was only late on in the campaign that hopes of a play-off place were finally extinguished.
Swansea will no doubt be keen to keep hold of Potter, given the promise he has shown, but the lure of the Premier League could be too strong for him to resist.
