(Reuters) – Brighton & Hove Albion have appointed Graham Potter as their new manager on a four-year contract from Championship side Swansea City, the Premier League club said on Monday.

Potter, who turned 44 on Monday, will replace Chris Hughton, who was sacked by Brighton last week after the south-coast club narrowly avoided relegation from the top flight.
