Hall appears to be on his way

The Argus: Grant Hall has not signed a new contract Grant Hall has not signed a new contract

Grant Hall has left his new Albion contract unsigned.

Now boss Gus Poyet admits the club have almost certainly seen the last of the young defender.

Hall was offered a three-year deal by the Seagulls after showing promise for the development squad and in limited senior outings last season.

The 20-year-old centre-back, who has been linked with Spurs, now becomes a free agent although Albion are eligible for compensation from the club who sign him as he is under 24.

Asked if Hall could be back, Poyet said: “We know nothing. It doesn’t look at all like it. It would be very strange if he came back now.”

Hall came off the bench in the 3-0 win over ten-man Southampton in January and started home and away against Wrexham in the FA Cup.

Astonishing in these times of acute austerity, to turn your back on a Three-Year Contract. Especially for a player who has played only a hand full of games in the Championship. Well, I guess we will have to "take the money" and move on.

It's certainly an odd one; especially when you compare Hall's attitude with Foster-Caskey's. You'd have thought that at this stage in what could be a promising career a club like Brighton would be the ideal place for a player like Hall. We're not a 'Neanderthal' club in the way we train our youngsters, and surely being here with a genuine chance of first team football is better than disappearing into the depths of being a Premiership squad player? Or maybe he wants to go somewhere like Accrington Stanley where he can be the star?

Seems a bit harsh slagging the player off. There must be another club interested whose managment or scouts have seen enough potential to make a move. Time will tell whether it's a good move for the lad, but I still think the Albion have been caught sleeping on this one.

Or maybe he just hasn't made his mind up yet and is waiting to see what other offers he gets? Spurs have a new manager and Grant Hall isn't going to be top of his to-do list. But in any event, he isn't top of the pecking order for centre back at Albion and I can't blame him for testing the market.

An agent would have tempted him with a much bigger wage packet at another club (he will know where he is going).
Albion have a wage structure, which will have been up to a certain limit for a fourth choice central defender, and they have to stick to it.
Plenty of Albion players have chosen to go elsewhere for a bit more money, but end up as just squad members or bench warmers at best.

I am just wondering if he couldnt have been involved a bit more, I suspect that leaving him largely ignored in the Dev squad after some promising mid season games, may have made his mind up for him. I fear for Toby the Viking too, will we spend a lot of time and effort 'developing' these players then have them pop off elsewhere when they get a bit tired of not being involved at 1st team level?..... I hope not.

Although all appears negative for the moment, Im sure GP is rubbing his hands together at the budget and wages payable he still has at this disposal at this point. 2 new signings to date and both although commanding a half decent salary were free. On the other side of the coin, we are now not paying a wage to Navarro, Hall, 3 x keepers, half a dozen development players and of course the loans, Mattock, Reyes, Assulin, Razac and Vokes.. The V man may also be off the wage bill aswell soon. This is quite exciting when you consider we have a better budget than last year,

7 subs this season will mean that development players will get a squad place more often, and get on the pitch if the game allows it.

At least with this departure we will get some cash.

Good point Heathgate re young players being involved more.
Last season the 5 sub rubbish rule worked against that.
Now that its gone and 7 subs are allowed on the bench we will hopefully see the likes of JFC in the squad frequently.

It was reported months ago that he had been offered a contract but he has refused to sign. I hope his agent knows what he's doing with the managerial changes at Spurs, he may not be wanted now. We should still get money for him albeit not much from a tribunal because he is under 24. Dingbat99

That leech Scally can go swing.

He did us no favour in 97-99.

Tin pot outfit with a very tinpot chairman / owner....see banning of Pulis from non-match related areas of The Priestfield last season in the cup.

And as I always say, if Ken is indeed "The Garden Of England" Gillingham is truly its outside toilet!....smelly, cramped, unpleasant, ugly, outdated and full of ____!
I second that.

Where's today's episode of Desperately Seeking Vicente with our wantaway prim Madonna?

They seek him here, they seek him there,
In old Sussex and Valencia,
In matters of our club he is as fickle as can be,
Cause he's a dedicated follower of sunshine..
Oh yes he is, Oh yes he is..

Sorry was feeling a bit kinky.
Vicente, come back please!!

No sign of any NEWS on the Albion web site or elsewhere---worrying that we were on the brink of signing new players and everything has gone quiet and players are being signed by other clubs. I just hope that Gus IS keeping his cards close to his chest and he will suddenly 'pull the news out of the hat'. Very frustrating???

Its at times like this, where good news is nowhere to be seen that i take comfort from knowing that TB is the captain of our ship.. The man is not just our club owner but a fan with desires like the rest of us. I rest assured knowing he will be cracking the whip making sure that all of his management team are performing to his very high expectations and that includes the Manager.

Ok, or it may just be that he won't let Gus have as much as he feels he needs to push the club forward at a pace. Otherwise SMF20, I agree with all you say about TB
