Lens coach Franck Haise is not a ‘priority’ for Brighton and Hove Albion in their search for Graham Potter’s successor.

That’s according to Jeunes Footeux, who say the Seagulls would prefer to hire an English coach to succeed Potter.

The website reports that, according to their information, Brighton are looking for a coach ‘with a good command of English’ and that’s led to two profiles being moved to the top of the list.

These candidates ‘stand out’ above the rest of their options. One is a manager who has already coached in the Premier League and the other is currently working abroad.

The latter is believed to be Kjell Knutsen, but that is not 100% certain and the website only mentions him in relation to reports elsewhere.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is another name that has been mentioned internally at Brighton, while Roberto De Zerbi is ‘in contact’ with the Seagulls.

It seems Haise is not on the list for the time being, or if he is, he isn’t considered a candidate that they will be pushing to secure for the time being as the focus is now on English speakers.
