Hughton doubts further deals

Brighton & Hove Albion

Brighton boss Chris Hughton says he isn’t anticipating any further arrivals before the transfer window closes.

The Seagulls brought striker Leonardo Ulloa back to the Amex Stadium earlier this week as Hughton finally managed to snare a new forward.

There have been tentative links with a few other apparent targets, but Hughton says he isn’t expecting to bring in any more new faces now.

“I must admit, I don’t see too much more happening,” he said, as reported by The Argus. “We have a squad in place and you, of course, never know. There certainly will be business at clubs over these next two days and even going into that last day.”

If the ankle injury sustained by Jiri Skalak in the FA Cup win at Middlesbrough turns out to be serious there is a chance Brighton could look for cover on loan, but as it stands it seems as if Hughton’s business is over in January.
