Tottenham Hotspur are now in their 68th day of their managerial search and are still yet to confirm who will be replacing Jose Mourinho.

The North Londoners have been linked with a whole host of names since April including Julian Nagelsmann, Erik ten Hag, Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca, Gennaro Gattuso and Nuno Espirito Santo.

One of the original names said to have been on Tottenham’s shortlist was Graham Potter (The Athletic).

Brighton deputy chairman and chief executive Paul Barber insisted in May that the south coast club had no intention of losing Potter and that he was happy with his current role (Argus).

The Sun have now claimed that Potter has no immediate desire to leave the Seagulls and his exit would cost a potential suitor £15million, given the fact he is under contract until 2025.

Potter is willing to remain at Brighton and continue to build his reputation in order to secure a future move to a club in the top four.

The search is becoming more and more tiring for Tottenham fans to endure.  It seems as if an appointment of Nuno Espirito Santo could be more likely, given the fact that Daniel Levy would not have to pay a release fee, given the fact he left Wolves at the end of last season.
