Graham Potter says he is happy with Viktor Gyokeres's current status at Brighton.

However, the ex-Swansea manager admitted that the Seagulls remain "open-minded" about his future development.

Swansea are keen to bolster their forward options by signing the 22-year-old on a season-long loan deal from the Premier League side.

And, speaking ahead of his side's clash with Manchester United on Saturday afternoon, Potter discussed Gyokeres' current situation amid interest from his former employers.

"I thought he worked away [against Preston] again. It was a tough ask for him, up against a couple of centre-backs and he took the fight a lot," said the Brighton boss.

"He ran lots and had opportunities and contributed to a win and contributed to a clean sheet in terms of how the team defended.

"So that is the challenge for him, to keep those steps going. It is only probably his second game for a while, certainly with us. So the more we know him, the more he knows us, I am sure the better he will get.

"But there is always a point where you have to make the right decision for him and us in terms of what pathway for his development is and we are open-minded about that. But at the moment he is with us and I am happy with that and happy with him."
