Poyet in contention for Everton post after admitting doubts over Brighton future

Brighton and Hove Albion manager Gus Poyet could be in contention for the Everton job after admitting that his time at the Amex Stadium may be coming to an end, reports the Daily Mail.

Poyet saw his Brighton side’s season come to a disappointing end on Monday, as they were knocked out of the Championship play-offs to eradicate their hopes of promotion to the Premier League as Brighton’s surprise 2-0 defeat to rivals Crystal Palace in the second-leg semi-final saw Ian Holloway’s side progress to the Wembley play-off final to face Watford

And the result has caused Poyet to question the long-term prospects of his current club, stating he needs to seek assurances before he can make a decision over his immediate future. “I’ve not been in this situation but I don’t like it,” Poyet said revealingly.

It’s changed my view completely about everything I was prepared for, so we’ll see now. I have always said that all the time we keep improving I am going to be at this football club and the day we hit the roof, I’m not.

Is there something more? Right now I don’t know, so I need to make sure I know there is, because if not, I am not going to stay forever.

Poyet was briefly a target for Reading in March following their dismissal of Brian McDermott and could now be a possible candidate to fill the vacancy left by David Moyes after the Scot agreed to move to Manchester United after 11 seasons at Goodison Park.
