Report: Swansea will speak to John Eustace about managers job; Barnsleys Daniel Stendel and Sunderlands Jack Ross also candidates

Brighton and Hove Albion are preparing to confirm Graham Potter as the clubs new manager at a press conference at 4.30pm today (Monday 20 May).

Swansea City boss Potter, who turns 44 today, is expected to bring his backroom team with him from the Swans to the Seagulls.

They include assistant manager Billy Reid, coach Bjorn Hamberg and Kyle Macaulay, the head of recruitment.

And the Mirror (page 50) suggest that QPR assistant manager Eustace is a contender to take over at the Liberty Stadium.

Albion are expected to compensate Swansea by paying the Welsh club between £2 million and £3 million after Potter turned down a new contract with the Championship side.

He would take over from Chris Hughton who left after Brighton finished 17th in the Premier League – just one place above the relegation zone.

Swansea may look to speak to Sunderland boss Jack Ross as they hunt a replacement for the outgoing Graham Potter, according to the print edition of The Mirror (May 20, page 50).

The team managed just 14 points – from three wins and five draws – in the second half of the season. They suffered 11 defeats.

After the 19th of their 38 matches – a 1-1 draw at home to Arsenal – Albion had 22 points from six wins and four draws.

Wales Online said at lunchtime: Swansea City boss Graham Potter is on the verge of taking over the hot seat at Brighton.

Since his arrival at the Stadium of Light last summer, Ross has already been linked with the West Brom managers job and the Scotland national team, despite insisting he remains fully focused on Sunderland.

The Premier League side have called a press conference for 4.30pm when Potter is expected to be unveiled.

The Mirror have claimed the Swans will speak to QPR assistant John Eustace about the managers role at the Liberty Stadium, while Ross and Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel are among the potential candidates.

Swansea had rejected an initial approach from the Premier League side and had offered to make Potter one of the best paid managers in the Championship in a desperate attempt to convince him to stay at the club.

“For however long I’m here, that’s what I’ll be focused on, and my commitment to the job I’ve got to do here hasn’t changed.

However, Swanseas offer clearly hasnt been enough to persuade him to stay and he looks highly likely to take his backroom staff with him to the south coast after Brighton met the terms of his compensation package which is believed to be just over £2 million.

Graham Potters willingness to experiment stands him out from the crowd

The club have already begun the search for Potters replacement although they are yet to draw up an official shortlist.
