Poyet has had coaching roles at Swindon, Leeds and Tottenham, before guiding Brighton into the Championship.
The former Chelsea star has refused to rule out a return to Stamford Bridge.
“Yes, perhaps. But I’m not in a hurry,” Poyet told The Independent.
“That doesn’t mean when I’m 72, but not tomorrow. Five years would be better than 10, but anyway I’m convinced that it’s possible with Brighton.
“If the aim were not the Premiership, I’d already be gone. But the chairman (Tony Bloom) wants the same as me.”
