Vicente talks have been positive says Poyet
The Seagulls boss believes his efforts to get the Spain international fully fit will help persuade him to extend his stay at The Amex.
Club doctor Helge Riepenhof, brought in from Germany in the latter stages of the season, masterminded a fitness plan which had Vicente firing on all cylinders for the run-in.
Poyet hopes that could play a part in the player’s decision.
The Albion boss told The Argus: “Vicente is away but we are in contact with him and I think there is a big possibility he will be with us next season “The situation is very clear. There are no issues. Everything is all right.
“It’s just trying to make sure that all parties are happy with the situation.”
Vicente has kept out of the media since returning to Spain last month.
But Poyet accepts teams in England and overseas will have monitored his performances in the Championship.
He said: “I suppose he could get offers but I think we have a great option because he has been playing a lot for us which hasn’t happened in the past.
“Hopefully he puts that into consideration as well.”
Albion were linked with Dundee United’s out-of-contract playmaker Danny Swanson last week.
Poyet responded: “Why would I sign him when I can have the best attacking midfielder in the Championship?
“He is still our player until June 30 and we have a great chance of keeping him.”
