Brighton and Hove Albion boss Chris Hughton has clarified that his team has no plans as of yet to sign anybody let alone Liverpool’s young star striker Dominic Solanke.
“At this moment I think we would be doing very minimal business if any at all,” said Albion boss Hughton when asked of the likelihood of a move for Solanke. What we have got as a squad is one we have built over these last couple of seasons and, in particular, players that we brought in last summer and the January before – in (Jurgen) Locadia’s case – that are now managing to get games in the team and be very much a part of the team and the squad. I think our recent recruitment, in particular the last couple of windows, holds us in good stead. At this moment I don’t think we need to improve the squad. What possibly might happen is one or two players going out on loan – certainly from the U23s. That is probably more of a possibility than someone coming in.”
Solanke, considered one of the brightest young prospects in England made the move from Chelsea, where he was not getting any game time. However, his move to Liverpool has also failed to shine, with the Reds star players upfront firing on all cylinders. This has led to a situation where the player might be again on the move soon, with Brighton tipped to be a destination.
