Albion are weighing up a number of enquiries for Christian Walton – with Wigan believed to want him on loan.

The Seagulls have yet to decide on a preferred destination for the England under-21 international goalkeeper.

But The Argus understands there is widespread interest in taking him on loan.

The Seagulls are keen for him to push on after impressive stints at Luton and Southend last term.

Wigan are expected to lose Matt Gilks to Scunthorpe, leaving them with no senior goalkeeper as they attempt to regain their place in the Championship.

They are looking to offer a season-long deal to the right man.
