Graham Potter is the gaffer at Brighton these days, but former boss Chris Hughton may be back in the Premier League before long.

The Express claim that Hughton is being considered to replace Manuel Pelligrini as West Ham United boss, should the Chilean be sacked.

West Ham are on a poor run of form, and were beaten by Jose Mourinho's Spurs on at the London Stadium on Saturday.

Hughton spent the best part of five years at the Amex Stadium, and has reportedly been biding his time to wait for the right Premier League opportunity.

Rafa Benitez is also being considered but is reportedly not interested in the job.
