The Seagulls' boss has implied that he would consider a move back to the North London club in a managerial capacity
Increased speculation linking current Spurs boss Harry Redknapp with England has seen a whole host of names thrown forward as his possible successor.
However, the Uruguayan has highlighted his desire for a ‘big job’ but stressed that this could still be at Brighton.
Poyet told The Daily Star: “I would like to be considered for big jobs because that is what I am managing for.
“I have a long-term contract here and I will try here. But if I can't [achieve my ambitions here] I will need to move on.”
He also explained how his time as assistant manager to Juande Ramos gave him vital experience at White Hart Lane.
"I am grateful to Juande Ramos. It was a great learning curve, but my character makes me like to make decisions all the time.
“Spurs chairman Daniel Levy knows me well so he wouldn't get someone he didn't know,” he added.
