Graham Potter has arrived at Chelsea's Cobham training ground in Surrey ahead of his unveiling as the club's new manager.

The Blues parted ways with successful coach Thomas Tuchel on Wednesday to widespread shock, and co-owner Todd Boehly has wasted little time in trying to appoint a successor.

90min revealed on Thursday morning that Brighton boss Potter had agreed to take charge of Chelsea following successful talks with the club.

The 47-year-old has been pictured arriving at Cobham to sign his contract and officially be presented as Chelsea's new manager.

Potter arrived at Brighton's training ground on Thursday morning to say his goodbyes ahead of the move to Chelsea. He is set to take charge of his first game for the club on Saturday when the Blues travel to west London neighbours Fulham.

Potter will arrive at Stamford Bridge with Chelsea ironically sitting three points behind Brighton in the Premier League table. Tuchel won just three of his seven games in charge of the club this season, with Tuesday's 1-0 defeat at Dinamo Zagreb in their Champions League group stage opener proving to be the final straw.
