Brighton’s Chief Executive comments on January transfer window plans



Brighton and Hove Albion are not planning on selling any key members of their squad this January, according to local news outlet The Argus.

Chief Executive Paul Barber has reiterated that Brighton will be doing everything they possibly can to keep the group together – just as they did in the summer – and backing Chris Hughton with the resources for promotion.

Brighton turned down a number of bids from Burnley for Dale Stephens this summer and rejected his transfer request.

Paul Barber has come out and said this amid speculation that Dale Stephens is likely to be caught up in a transfer storm in January yet again, with Brendan Rodgers interested in bringing the talented central midfielder to Celtic.

Other key players, such as Lewis Dunk and Anthony Knockaert, are also not for sale this January as Brighton try to put their foot down in order to maintain a serious promotion challenge.

Barber added that it is demoralising to build a squad only for it to be decimated and weakened in the January transfer window.

Meanwhile, The Argus adds that Brighton remain keen on bringing another striker to the club to take the weight off the shoulders of Glenn Murray and add competition for Sam Baldock and Tomer Hemed.
