AN ALBION star has deleted all pictures relating to the club from his Instagram account amid ongoing transfer interest.

Yves Bissouma has been linked with the move away from the club since Aston Villa’s rejected bid in January.

After a record-breaking season for Brighton and Hove Albion, the midfielder has since deleted all pictures of him playing for the club from his Instagram feed.

He has also added a hammer emoji to his Instagram bio.

Earlier this month, The Times reported that Bissouma had requested permission to leave the club amid interest from a trio of Premier League clubs.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City all reportedly inquired about the availability of the Mali international as they seek to strengthen in midfield.

Olympique Marseille are also exploring bringing the 24-year-old back to French football, according to The Times, while West Ham have also been linked.

Bissouma joined Brighton from Lille in the summer of 2018 for a transfer fee that could reach €18 million.

His current contract is due to expire in two seasons’ time.

Last week, The Argus reported that Albion are ready to hold on to all of their prized assets this summer – unless an irresistible offer comes along.

Bissouma, Marc Cucurella and Robert Sanchez have all been linked with clubs at home and abroad, but there have been no bids as yet for any of these players.

Nor, The Argus understands, has there been significant contact at this early stage with any other club about the squad who took the Seagulls into the top half of the Premier League table.
