Potts has featured ten times under Allardyce, and the England Under-20 defender is eager for more.
"I'm definitely looking for more. Every year, especially in pre-season, as a young lad you want to set your stall out for the rest of the season. You know, pre-season games are going to give you chances and you have to take those chances to show the Gaffer what you can do and if you're good enough to step up to the Premier League.
"Definitely, this year is a massive year for everyone at the Club," he told West Ham TV.
