A player described as ‘a delight to work with’ by Seagulls boss, Graham Potter (in quotes relayed by The National), it seems somewhat unlikely that the South Coast-based outfit will be prepared to sanction the exit of their latest unearthed gem in light of the fact that his contract doesn’t expire until 2025.
