Albion are waiting to see whether Glasgow Rangers come in with a second bid for Connor Goldson.

But they will be quite happy if they do not hear again from the Ibrox outfit.

If necessary, the Seagulls will tell the Scottish giants their former Shrewsbury centre-back remains a big part of their plans at the Amex, unless things take a dramatic twist this summer.

Albion have rejected an initial bid in the region of £1.5 million from Rangers for the 25-year-old defender.

The offer is know to have fallen well below their valuation of the player.

They see Goldson as part of their thoughts for next term along with a central defender who will be added to make up for the departure of Uwe Huenemeier.

Goldson, thought to be valued at about £2 million, was targeted by the new Rangers management team of Steven Gerrard and assistant Gary McAllister as part of their ’build from the back’ approach to closing the gap on treble winners Celtic.

Sources north of the border believe Goldson would find the allure of joining Rangers and working with Anfield legend Gerrard irresistible. And not just because he is a Liverpool fan and, therefore, big admirer of the new Ibrox boss.

The feeling behind closed doors at Albion’s training complex in Lancing is that Goldson is good enough to play Premier League football south of the border.

Which is why they are in no rush whatsoever either to sell him or to invite bids.

At the same time, they are aware he needs to be playing regular games at a higher level to maintain his rate of development.

That has not been forthcoming all the time Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy have been turning in quality performances as Chris Hughton’s first choice duo.

The Goldson situation is seen as one which could change as the summer goes on and signings are made at both Albion and Rangers.

Gerrard wants at least two new centre-backs for his squad but the Seagulls are in no rush or mood to sell.

Neither do they have any pressing need to do business.
