Brighton chairman, Tony Bloom, has said that he expects Graham Potter to be at the club next season despite the speculation linking him with the Tottenham job.

Despite leading Brighton to a 15th and 16th place finish in his two seasons in charge, Potter has received rave reviews from some pundits for the style of football he has implemented at the club. 

It was previously reported that the English coach would be a popular appointment with the Spurs squad, with many of the players being impressed by Brighton’s set-up. 

However, some sources have revealed that, while the 46-year-old has admirers at Spurs, Daniel Levy views him as a risky appointment. 

Potter is no longer one of the front-runners for the Tottenham job, with reports over recent days revealing that Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte are the North Londoners’ preferred choices. 

Even if Spurs come calling for Potter, Bloom is confident that the Seagulls boss will stay put at the Amex Stadium.

When asked about Potter’s future, the Brighton chairman told The Athletic: “When it comes to Graham, like players, unless anything substantive happens, I ignore it.

“There are always going to be stories about the head coach if you’re doing well or any of the players. 

“We just carry on and ignore that. If anything happens, then we deal with it at that time.

“It reflects well on him and the club. I’m delighted for him, but at the end of the day, he’s our head coach. 

“We’re delighted he’s here and we expect him to be here for many years to come.”
