Brighton planning new moves for pair eyed by England

Brighton are planning moves to keep two of their stars who have recently caught the eye of England manager Gareth Southgate.

The Seagulls have been flying in recent weeks under Roberto De Zerbi, winning 5-1 at Middlesbrough in the FA Cup before trouncing Liverpool 3-0 at the AMEX on Saturday.

They’re up to seventh in the Premier League, firmly among the teams chasing qualification for European competitions. Solly March netted twice against the Reds and his recent fine form has him in line for a new contract.

90min understands Albion are planning a new 18-month extension to his current deal, which expires in 2024, to ward off interest from rival Premier League sides.

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe and football director Dan Ashworth are both keen on the 28-year-old, who has contributed four goals and three assists in his last five games. His goals against Liverpool gave him his first ever top flight brace, while he also assisted Danny Welbeck’s late strike.

The Seagulls are also planning the next steps for loanee Levi Colwill at the club.

19-year-old Colwill joined Brighton for the season from Chelsea and has been a regular starter during the post-World Cup schedule. His form at the back so far has brought him England contention alongside March, 90min has learned.

Brighton want to keep Colwill and will pursue another loan if they cannot sign the teenager on a permanent move. Chelsea currently have the likes of Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah, Benoit Badiashile, Kalidou Koulibaly and Wesley Fofana in the centre back pecking order at Stamford Bridge, while Colwill has usurped Adam Webster on the south coast to start alongside Lewis Dunk.

Southgate is due to select a squad before England’s next round of games, those being two Euro 2024 qualifiers against Italy and Ukraine in March.
