Former Albion back-up keeper Peter Brezovan is training with Oxford United with a view to a short-term deal as the Seagulls' hunt for a new No. 1 continues.

The giant 34-year-old Slovakian has teamed up with United at Bisham Abbey for their pre-season preparations.

Their first choice Ryan Clarke is out until the winter following foot surgery and Brezovan could be signed as cover for Max Crocombe.

Oxford manager Michael Appleton said: "Peter's out of contract and we'll monitor him over the next couple of days.

"We've only got Max at the minute, so we certainly need one. We don't need one beyond the new year because Clarkey will be back. He's one of three or four options."

Brezovan, released in May, made 62 appearances in four-and-a-half seasons with Albion.

Meanwhile, midfielder Keith Andrews, loaned by Albion from Bolton Wanderers last season, is on course to join Championship rivals Watford on the same basis.

Albion visit Watford on October 4.

I would still love to see him and the Albion kiss and make up. TK was worth at least 10 points to us last season.

I think he was the season before last. Last season he dipped quite a bit and stopped making those 'miracle' saves he was known for.

I had my heart in my mouth watching him at the end of last season. Simply shocking. I don't want him back.

I cannot recall seeing a bad goalkeeper in the Championship last season,all seemed to raise their game at the Amex. Even the Yeovil keeper was good.
TK game went right off for the last few weeks of season and best we all move on.

Just over 2 weeks to go and still no news of any further additions. O'grady may have come in but with Ulloa out we only seem to be one player up with Hughes. Hope the latter part of this week seems some action on this front.

I think Peter blew hot and cold and wasn't consistent. Looked good at times but then mostly poor. Was it a confidence thing. Still think he has potential with the right coaching.

Leave Ankers alone. Might not be the world's best but a good bloke to have around.

TK? Let himself down by all accounts. Best to move on.

Young Walton is definitely one for the future. Maybe this season even. I leave it to the guys who know what they're doing.
