He was linked with a move to the top flight in the January transfer window but has said in the past that his mind is solely focused on his current side at the moment.

Burnley are also believed to be interested in him with Derby expected to brace themselves for top flight interest in him over the coming months.

Brighton are hoping to secure their place in the Premier League for next season as soon as possible. Chris Hughton’s side are currently 15th in the league and five points above the relegation zone. They also have a game in hand so should be able to stay up bar a disastrous collapse.
