Richie Towell is unlikely to play any Premier League football for Brighton and Hove Albion next season.
The Dubliner had limited opportunities for the Seagulls as they gained promotion from the Championship.
He’s played just 6 minutes this season, coming on in the 2-0 win over Rotherham United back in March.
Manager Chris Hughton is a big fan though and wants to keep Towell at the club.
The former Republic of Ireland international says that Towell will need to go out on loan: “Players like Rohan Ince and Richie Towell will go out on loan.
“We have been really delighted with Richie but we are very keen for him to get out on loan to the Championship next season.”
