Chris Hughton was sacked this morning after a disappointing run of just three wins from 23 league games in the Premier League, although he did keep Brighton in the top flight for a second successive season.

Potter guided the Swans to a tenth-placed finish in the Championship this season and has previously managed Ostersund in Sweden. Among the clubs he played for were Birmingham, Stoke, West Brom, Southampton and York.
