Brighton and Hove Albion have received plenty of interest in the vacant manager's job following Oscar Garcia's resignation.

The Seagulls are looking for a new boss for the second summer running after Spaniard Garcia quit on Monday following their failure to reach the play-off final.

Tim Sherwood is currently the bookmakers' favourite for the role having parted company with Tottenham, but Brighton are not commenting on any speculation.

Chief executive Paul Barber told the club website: " Most of Monday was spent dealing with Oscar's departure; once we confirmed we had accepted his resignation in the early evening, that of course triggered a number of enquiries to the club about the position.

"We can't divulge any names, and we won't comment on media speculation, but at this stage what I can say is that we have been contacted by some very high-calibre managers and coaches who want to work for Brighton & Hove Albion.

"It's certainly a very good indication of just how far our club has come in a very short period of time."
