Swansea have rejected an approach from Brighton for manager Graham Potter, Sky Sports News understands.
Potter became Brighton's number one target following the sacking of Chris Hughton on Monday.
Sky Sports News understands Potter is happy at Swansea and could be tempted to continue his rebuilding job at the Liberty Stadium, despite being attracted by the prospect of managing in the Premier League.
Brighton technical director Dan Ashworth, who left the FA to join the club, is thought to have been watching Potter's Swansea in recent months and has been impressed with the style of play he has implemented.
Potter was appointed Swansea boss last summer following their relegation from the Premier League, but was unable to secure an instant return to the top flight, finishing the Sky Bet Championship campaign in 10th.
