Brighton next manager: Graham Potter odds on to become new boss after Chris Hughton sacked

Swansea City manager Graham Potter is the odds-on favourite to become Brighto boss following the dismissal of Chris Hughton.

Hughton left the Premier League club on Monday, despite avoiding relegation, following a run of just three wins in their last 23 matches.

Potter is as short as 1/8 with Betfair and 1/3 with Sky Bet, having guided Swansea to 10th in the Championship despite tightening financial constraints at the Welsh club.

The former Southampton player made his name in management with Ostersunds in Sweden, who he guided to three promotions and the national cup, qualifying for the Europa League.

Other candidates for the Brighton position include England women’s manager Phil Neville, who is leading his country to the World Cup this summer.

Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill and Laurent Blanc, out of management since leaving PSG in 2016, are also tipped for the role.
