Chris Hughton says Brighton are not expecting to do too much business when the January transfer window opens. Despite losing their last three outings, the Seagulls sit nine points clear of the relegation places ahead of Arsenal’s visit to the Amex on Boxing Day.
Last season saw Brighton delve into the January market with the record signing of Jurgen Locadia from PSV Eindhoven.
Locadia’s form has been inconsistent since his arrival and that has potentially swayed the club away from winter negotiations.
When quizzed on the matter, Hughton conceded the Seagulls would potentially pursue a deal if the right man became available but says he is happy with what he has got and is unlikely to push for wholesale transfers. “We’ll work as hard as we can to think about areas to strengthen next month,” Hughton said at his pre-match press conference. “I think it’ll be a quiet one for us – we have the benefit of having of players we’ve brought in during recent windows who are still developing.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
