    My concern is that we keep looking at signing players that 'got promoted' but then 'don't feature' in their respective premiership squads. I appreciate that getting up is one thing and staying up is another, but surely we should be thinking longer term. Mason and Conway don't tick the right boxes for me. If they're not good enough for Cardiff, they're not good enough for Brighton. Get up with a squad that is capable of playing - like Swansea did a couple of years ago and then build from there by adding more and more quality. I'd sooner wait a year or two.. Just my opinion!
    I can see where you are coming from but not many teams in the Champ Div have prem quality players, well not in great numbers they don't.
    Conway and Mason didn't make the step up but that might have been down to who Cardiff bought. Neither of the lads got any real chance to show their worth in the prem, perhaps with us they might. Mason is young and may well benefit from joining us, Oscar does have that knack of bring out the best in the younger lads, I hope the lad sees that and that we can put a deal together to get him. I think Conway has shown his worth to us at this level, not sure how it would go for him if we got promoted.
    As I see it, all this squad has to do is get us promoted. Once Premiership football is secured, I would envisage a real shake-up. So, for now, all we have to consider is whether the players coming in, whosoever they may be, can complement the quality we already have and take us to the next level."

Albion have Cardiff's Joe Mason on their radar as they weigh up their striker options.

The Seagulls are looking at Mason as a possible replacement for Ashley Barnes if he moves to Leeds or Burnley, The Argus can reveal.

Mason is in a similar situation at Cardiff to winger Craig Conway, who Albion want back on loan.

The 22-year-old bought from Plymouth for £250,000 in July 2011 helped the Welshmen to promotion from the Championship last season but has not featured for them in the Premier League.

Former Republic of Ireland under 21 international Mason has just returned from a loan spell with Bolton Wanderers.

The Seagulls would face competition to secure the £600,000-rated marksman from Championship rivals Bolton and others.
