Speaking particularly on Reece James who is in a race against time to feature in the World Cup,

Potter said: “I can’t really comment because I don’t know the ins and outs but he’s taken his stance.

“Sometimes you have to do that and then you need the club to support. So on the outside that’s what’s happened.

“It’s difficult for me to comment because I don’t know the actual context, I don’t know what’s really happened. I don’t want to go off headlines and things like that.

“Part of the job is to take decisions that are difficult but that’s normal.”
