According to The Guardian, despite interest from both Chelsea and Brighton, Kieran McKenna has reportedly decided to snub offers from elsewhere and commit his future to Ipswich Town.

The report claims that the 38-year-old manager, who guided Ipswich to promotion to the top flight, has been offered a lucrative contract that will see him become one of the highest-paid managers in England.

Initially linked with Kieran McKenna, the report states that Brighton may now shift their focus to former manager Graham Potter. Potter, who was relieved of his duties at Chelsea last season, is reportedly being considered for a return to the Seagulls’ dugout.
