Brighton chairman Tony Bloom has said that the club will be aiming for a play-off place in next season’s Championship.

The Seagulls have flirted with relegation this season and despite high hopes at the start of the season, Sami Hyypiä resigned as manager after just 6 months in charge. Chris Hughton has steadied the ship and Albion now sit 10 points above the relegation zone with 7 games to play.

Bloom, who took over Brighton in 2009, has outlined his plans for the next campaign and told The Argus “We will do our very best to give ourselves a competitive squad to be in the top six, so for sure we’ll be getting in new recruits in the summer which will get us in that position. It’s going to be quite a busy summer. We’ve got to get this season out of the way.”
