Swansea will demand a fee of £2 million should another club look to appoint Graham Potter this summer, according to a report from The Sun on Sunday (5/5; page 59), in news that is bound to be of interest to both Celtic and West Brom.
Potter has done an impressive job during his managerial career. His spell with Ostersunds saw him reach the latter stages of the Europa League, and led to the Swans appointing him as their new boss at the start of the season.
It looks set to be a top-half finish for Swansea this term. And, while they have rarely looked like challenging for the play-off spots, there appears to be a sense that Potter is really building something at the Liberty Stadium.
However, the report adds that Swansea plan to demand £2 million for the Englishman. It remains to be seen what the interested clubs make of their asking price.
With Neil Lennon guiding the Hoops to another league title, it would perhaps be a gamble to pay the seven-figure fee for Potter - and the same could be said if James Shan manages to take the Baggies up through the play-offs in the Championship.
But given the work that he did in Sweden and that he is starting to do with the Swans, there is reason to think that it could be money well spent for either side if Celtic or West Brom decide to make a move.
