Albion were interested in Orient's Moses Odubajo in January

First published in Sport by , Chief sports reporter

Albion could be priced out of making a renewed move for Leyton Orient’s highly-rated winger Moses Odubajo.

The Seagulls were interested in Odubajo during the January transfer window but were rebuffed by the O’s.

The asking price has risen appreciably since then due to Odubajo’s continued good form and eye-catching performance in Orient’s League One play-off final defeat by Rotherham at Wembley last month.

New Albion boss Sami Hyypia has begun the process of assessing the squad and areas that need strengthening ahead of his formal unveiling on Thursday.

They will include another wide man following the return of loan signing Jesse Lingard to Manchester United, the release of Andrea Orlandi and repeated fitness concerns last season surrounding Will Buckley.

Odubajo, 20, netted 12 times for the O’s, including the play-off semi-final at Peterborough and a spectacular effort in the defeat by Rotherham on penalties which prevented the East Londoners from joining Albion in the Championship.

Spurs and West Ham are believed to have monitored Odubajo, who has a year remaining on his contract at the Matchroom Stadium.

Orient chief and former Albion boss Russell Slade has said it will require a “sizeable offer” to tempt them to sell.

Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest were last night on the verge of completing the capture of Matt Fryatt. Albion have reportedly been among several clubs interested in signing the Hull striker.

Shame about Fyatt as he could have done a job for us. A lot of players will stay up North considering the house prices etc...
I am not sure about this winger from Orient..
The person I was impressed with was Taverner on loan from Newcaste (great attackin RB) and Pringle both for Rotherham; can't remember noticing the Orient guy.
Plenty of free people out there including the likes of Kuz and quite a few pl players. If they want regular football then the need to realise a drop in wages if they want to play in the UK.
If the budget is ok then I can see a few bargains.

I agree it's dull to read headlines such as this.
I like to hear about actual transfer scoups ahead of them being released by the club. That's good journalism.
Anyway, being out priced for an Orient player hardly excites anyone.

Spot on. I posted the same opinion on Tavernier and Pringle in a "Who would you like us to sign" thread on here a few weeks ago. Both players have had outstanding seasons. Tavernier is PL class and would be a substantial upgrade on what we have, Pringle is a quality Championship player in waiting who's reading of the game and left foot are excellent....every corner and free kick he swings into the box looks dangerous and he can take a great pen.

I would mention to everyone that seem not happy with transfers & the Team at present.
If we look at our current squad in depth in my opinion, the players we have the quality is there.
There is a need for a GK, 2 Right Backs, & I would say a Centre Back, a new Captain, which should be Andrew Crofts.
We have 8 players under 25, quality players, 2 players under 29, 2 players at 30. This in my opinion is looking good for the new season, as mention replace the age at the back & we would be on track for the top.

As I said the other day--lets get behind Sami and The Albion NOW and think positive and that includes The Argus. Agree if we get a decent offer for Buckley then take it, he has not come up to expectations on a regular basis and is too injury prone. As for the Cole story, the only time I heard him mentioned as coming here was on posters ´maybe´wish list. be good though to find an experienced player to replace Upson. We had Bridges, Upson and who next?? I hope by this time next week we have good news of players coming in. Yes Thurs should be an interesting Press Conference!!

Yeah right!

Joe Cole has still got more than it would take to boss any Championship game, but no way was he ever destined for us. We couldn't (or wouldn't) cover his wage demands for an obvious starter. Also he has a worrying injury record and I suspect the last thing TB would want is a high risk, high wage player like him who could easily spend half the season using our medical facilities.

By your logic the big attraction was OG. Whilst I liked Oscar and think we didn't get full benefit from him, I can't honestly see him being the Joe Cole magnet that you suggest and even more I can't imagine that if he was such a dead cert to come here, nobody would remember that in the confusion of changing manager and pick up the phone to him!

You're having a giraffe mate - either that or you're somewhat misguided!!

I guess it depends on what you mean by, 'a poor team.'

To my way of thinking the, 'poor teams,' were relegated, the not so poor teams finished md table, and better teams finished in the top six places. It's fair to say that we were not as good as some of those that finished above us but we were a whole lot better than many that finished below us.
When you have a season where you are, 'forced,' to constantly look to the young lads due to injuries, and no, not an excuse, finishing in the top six could be seen as a good year.

Would our season had been different if Crofts had not been injured, or if Buckley and Orlandi had been available more often, maybe. CMS pretty much recovered from his initial injury only to pick up another one during training, did that have any impact on our season, possibly.

Failing to get promotion does not mean that the season was a failure.

When you have a season where you are, 'forced,' to constantly look to the young lads due to injuries, and no, not an excuse, finishing in the top six could be seen as a good year. Would our season had been different if Crofts had not been injured, or if Buckley and Orlandi had been available more often, maybe. CMS pretty much recovered from his initial injury only to pick up another one during training, did that have any impact on our season, possibly. Failing to get promotion does not mean that the season was a failure. VegasSeagull

Good shout. I'm sure he's on the radar. I thought their keeper looked decent to and were we not supposed to be interested in a CF from the same team, 6' 4'' or something.
Dave I think that would be Ishmael Miller, he scored 10 goals in 23 matches, Yoevil loaned him out to Forest last season, that's the info I got from a quick search.
No it wasn't him, Vegas, it was a lower profile younger player...can't remember his name for the life of me though!

I stand corrected, thanks people, now take a look at the guy I thought it was, maybe an even better player for us. Odd that Yoevil got relegated yet they loaned out a decent, if not good, striker to Forest.

With respect, Vegas, that is hardly conclusive.
The Media is hardly going to use David Burke's name in a story about transfer targets. They will want to get Hyypia's name in there. I'm not saying he isn't a Hyypia target, but I think you are reading too much into it.

We will be priced out of most transfers imo, until the end of the transfer window is upon us. That is unless it's an unknown gamble that comes in on the cheap, this could work in our favour for the season ahead as others will want the big names and pay a price, this is the restart of a 5 year plan and BHA this coming season will steady the ship as it were, top half of the division and push on from there in 2015/16, a play off spot followed by promotion the following season. Hypia in his third season with us takes us to Wembley and ultimately the premiership! Fridays euro millions numbers to follow shortly!

All joking aside, a couple of seasons building the team, followed by a concerted push for promotion imo. UTA To baldly go

Hyypia has barely had time to assess what is left of our squad let alone assess any replacements for those that have recently left - you are being very naive if you believe that he has a 'list of targets' already!!

Errr.... he was a target last January. Was Sami plotting his escape from Bayer Leverkusen to Brighton last January when they were riding high in the Bundesligue?

Best have a conference with the publicity department over that one next time you meet TB

With respect, Vegas, that is hardly conclusive.
The Media is hardly going to use David Burke's name in a story about transfer targets. They will want to get Hyypia's name in there. I'm not saying he isn't a Hyypia target, but I think you are reading too much into it.
yes of course you are right to be sceptical about the press comment but, this report might have originated via the club, a little leak offering the suggestion that Hyypia has hit the ground running. So the article could turn out to be spot on, even if the source is slightly shaded.

I thought the big tall lad was Kieran Moore ,joined from Dorchester ,same as our lad Brennan Dickensen !.
That's the chappy. He didn't line up against us for Yeovil in April as he had a slight injury.
I stand corrected, thanks people, now take a look at the guy I thought it was, maybe an even better player for us. Odd that Yoevil got relegated yet they loaned out a decent, if not good, striker to Forest.
He fell out spectacularly with manager Gary Johnson.

Where on earth do you get the notion that he's on Hyppia's list of targets?!!

The story says: "New Albion boss Sami Hyypia has begun the process of assessing the squad and areas that need strengthening ahead of his formal unveiling on Thursday. They will include another wide man ...."

There is nothing here that suggests anything new or that Hyypia is interested in him directly, or that those already at the club - are STILL interested. It's just a speculative, negative story on a player we were supposed to be looking at during January. There is no update that suggests he's currently on ANYONE'S list at Albion.

And I hardly the club would provide any ammunition of this sort to The Argus that could end up as making us look fools.

And another thing.... A little leak to show he's hit the ground running? I'm not sure The Argus is being leaked anything and this is a sh*tty story to fill a void.

I'm not quite sure what you are on about as no-one has implicitly decried TB or said that 'he doesn't have our best interests at heart' !!
But as for Burke and Barber not running the club that is exactly what they do do as a) that's their job and b) Bloom spends a lot of time out of the country!!
Tony Bloom has put a fortune into this club for which we all should be greatful, however, a 'real fan' has the right to ask serious questions if things aren't going according to plan - you may well think that the club is being well-run when we have lost two decent managers in the space of 12 months, however, I'm sure many would disagree!!

Are you still going on about this?! He is a' key target for' Hyypia because the club have previously identified him as such! The idea that Hyypia has got this job late last week, arrived from Germany, assessed our team then scoured the leagues and come up with this gem, which is what you are suggesting, is nonsensical and I fail to understand why you are persevering with this line that is obviously incorrect!!
