Graham Potter has insisted Moises Caicedo is happy at Brighton and is not pushing for a move, amid reported interest from Arsenal and Manchester United.

The Seagulls have already sold Yves Bissouma and Marc Cucurella this summer, to Tottenham and Chelsea respectively, and Caicedo is the latest one of their players to be attracting interest.

The 20-year-old midfielder joined Brighton in February 2021 and spent the first-half of last season on loan, but is now an important part of Potter’s side and has played 90 minutes in both Premier League matches this campaign.

Brighton would likely be reluctant to sell anyway but with significant funds already brought in by player sales this summer, that stance has potentially hardened even further.

Speaking ahead of his team’s trip to face West Ham this weekend, Potter was full of praise for Caicedo and made it clear how much he values the player.

“He is a really humble person, loves playing football,” Potter said.

“I would say he is really low maintenance as a player, and just wants to join in football with his team-mates.

“He is really enjoying his football as you can imagine. He is only young, but he has got such a high possibility I think. We love him here.

“As for speculation, it is what it is. When the transfer window is open, you always get that stuff but he is really enjoying his football here and we are really enjoying having him.”

“As a coach - he is a delight to work with.”
