Chelsea announced Graham Potter as their new head coach, a day after parting company with Thomas Tuchel.

The 47-year-old, who had coached Brighton & Hove Albion since 2019, signed a five-year deal and would begin his tenure immediately away at Fulham on Saturday.

Meanwhile, over at Brighton, Under-21s coach Andrew Crofts took interim charge of the first team, who visit Bournemouth.

"I am incredibly proud and excited to represent his fantastic football club.

"I am very excited to partner with Chelsea’s new ownership group and look forward to meeting and working with the exciting group of players and to develop a team and culture that our amazing fans can be proud of.

"I would also like to place my sincere thanks to Brighton & Hove Albion for allowing me this opportunity and in particular Tony Bloom and all the players, staff and supporters for their continued support during my time at the club," he said in an official club statement.

During his time on the South Coast, Potter kept the Seagulls away from relegation threats in his first two seasons and secured a top-10 finish last season.

This season, he guided Brighton to a fantastic start with four wins in six games, including impressive wins over Manchester United and Leicester City.
