Transfer target set for Albion talks

First published in Sport by , Chief sports reporter

Cork City prospect Brian Lenihan is poised for talks with Albion over a potential move to the Amex.

The Seagulls and an un-named second club, thought to be from the Premier League, have had bids accepted for the 20-year-old right-back.

Lenihan, speaking to reporters after he was pulled out of Cork's game against Bohemians last night, said: "Sunday I think, going to be heading over to meet with Brighton, I'm not really sure how it will go.

"All I ever wanted was to play football over in England, But I've really enjoyed it over here. I haven't given it much thought obviously because we've been heavily involved but now I know I'm going over I'm really looking forward to it."

Ok. So if he's that good, do what Cloughie used to. Get him over, lock him the office and don't let him out until he signs.

What!!!
Why wouldn't he prefer the sharp north east wind blowing off the North Sea, the glorious brown waters of the River Humber, and the young ladies with 'corned beef' coloured legs standing outside the clubs and pubs on a Saturday night. Oh..... and sitting on the bench at first team games if he's lucky.

of all the things that have happened lately this is most encouraging that we are prepared to spend serious money on a player for the future.

Time to do your stuff Sami.....sell him on your plans and convince him you and this team will be the perfect stepping stone as he builds his career! From what I've read, this kid is another great prospect akin to Van Dyke. Difference being, don't let this one get away!
