Brighton manager Graham Potter will not be allowed to leave the club despite reports linking him with Tottenham, says chief executive Graham Barber.
Potter has been linked with the vacant position at Spurs as Jose Mourinho's replacement who was sacked by the north London side. But Barber insists any approach would not be welcomed and expects Potter to stay at the Amex “for many years to come”.
"We have no desire whatsoever to lose Graham," he told the Argus.
"Graham is very happy here. We are delighted with the work he is doing, the work that the staff around Graham are doing, so as far as we are concerned, there is absolutely no way that we would allow Graham to leave at this time."
"I don’t think there is any interest on Graham’s part either, I think he is very happy with what he is doing and we are delighted with what he is doing for us."
"I think over the last two seasons people have seen the progress we have made in terms of the style of football and the quality of our performances against teams that have got substantially more expensively assembled squads than us and a very significant part of that is down to the work of Graham and his staff."
"So we are delighted with him and we expect him to be here for many years to come. Nobody has been in contact with me and I wouldn’t expect them to."
The 45-year-old signed a four-year deal in 2019.
