Brighton Boss Gives Update On Lewis Dunk Transfer To Chelsea

Brighton & Hove Albion manager, Graham Potter doesn’t seem perturbed about the transfer rumours surrounding Lewis Dunk and a move to Chelsea.

Frank Lampard's side have struggled at the back at times this season, and with the transfer ban having been lifted the Blues have been linked with several players this month.

Dunk is one of those players who has been a key part of the Seagulls, firstly to get promotion from the Championship and then to keep them in the Premier League.

Chelsea are yet to make a move in the transfer market this month, with Blues supporters getting frustrated that the club have not brought in any new players.

But Seagulls boss does not think that Dunk, 28, is likely to be the first for Chelsea in January.

“He signed a long term contract (July 2018). We are quite relaxed about the situation,” Potter said.

“I have really enjoyed working with Lewis as a footballer and as a person. He is really important for us and we are really happy that he is with us.

“January is always a little bit different from every other month if we are being honest. There is always a lot going on, a lot of talk from you guys (media) questions and interest.

“The window is open so there are more things going on in that regard but that is normal we know that is the case.
