Graham Potter remains high on the list of candidates to take over from Enzo Maresca at Leicester City, however complications could yet arise with fresh reports of Brighton interest in their former manager.

The 49-year-old fan-favourite to be handed the reigns at the King Power Stadium, Potter remains in search of his next venture having parted ways with Chelsea midway through the 2022/23 campaign. He was said to be eyeing potential high-profile vacancies to come, although fresh word from The Athletic is that his ex-employers Brighton have been considering him for a return.

This has so far not impacted his 5/1 odds at third favourite, however Leicester supporters may regretably see those drift over the coming days were the Seagulls to act before their own side. The man who has been on the Foxes' radar ever since Brendan Rodgers' dismissal still lives in the South East, and is said to have been the subject of end-of-season discussions at the AMEX Stadium.

Meanwhile West Bromwich Albion boss Carlos Corberan remains the 9/4 favourite to take over at Leicester, despite the matter of compensation required in any deal to bring him to the East Midlands. Former Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper follows him at 5/2, then after Potter, ex-Chelsea man Maurizio Sarri is 6/1.

Manchester United hero Ruud van Nistelrooy has seen his odds drift over the past couple of days. The former PSV Eindhoven boss was a surprise 7/2 third favourite upon entering the running, but has since slipped to 7/1.

It was Chelsea's dismissal of Mauricio Pochettino that sparked the current upheaval at the King Power Stadium as the Foxes prepare for life back in the Premier League following their Championship title triumph under Maresca, a former assistant to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City. It is understood the Italian has agreed a five-year contract to take over at Stamford Bridge .
