Albion have doubts over Bruno and Andrew Crofts for Arsenal's FA Cup visit on Saturday.

  Bruno has missed seven of the last eight matches with an Achilles problem.

  Boss Gus Poyet has also revealed that Crofts' absence from the squad for the draws at Birmingham and Blackburn was due to injury.

  Poyet told The Argus: "On Thursday (last) he felt his hamstring here at The Amex. We thought it was nothing but then on Friday he couldn't train, so we left him behind."

  Albion had no pitch to train on this morning, reducing the chances of Bruno and Crofts proving their fitness to play a part against the Gunners.

  Vicente came through his first league start of the season at Blackburn. The Spaniard, sidelined since August by thigh trouble, lasted 55 minutes at Ewood Park before he was substituted.

  Poyet said: "He is tired and tight but allright, so he is available again."

  The Seagulls are still waiting for international clearance for new signing Leonardo Ulloa.

  Poyet, confirming there had been no developments on the Argentinian's red tape issue, said: "I can't say too much, because I think I have been quite clear about the situation. I was expecting him to play against Birmingham and I still don't understand why."

  Albion have yet to make a fresh bid for giant Dutch centre half Virgil van Dijk after their original offer was rejected by his club Groningen.

  The transfer window shuts at 11pm next Thursday and Poyet said: "At the moment it's very quiet. We have got a big squad with practically everybody fit and I don't like bringing players just for the sake of using the transfer window.

  "If something happened the other way (players leaving) then we are ready, just in case."
