Tomer Hemed has attracted interest from Queens Park Rangers.

The Israeli striker, Oliver Norwood and Richie Towell are all strong candidates to return to the Championship before tomorrow’s 5pm deadline.

The Seagulls, meanwhile, are relaxed about their efforts to land Wigan’s Dan Burn or another central defender as an eighth new addition to their 25-man Premier League squad.

Reading and several other Championship clubs wanted Hemed last summer, when Albion missed out on Florin Andone.

They now have Andone, Glenn Murray and January arrival Jurgen Locadia fighting for forward places.

That leaves little room for Hemed, 31, who has scored three goals during pre-season.

New Rangers boss Steve McClaren wants more firepower and experience after his side lost 1-0 at Preston on the opening day of the season.

Defeats also in their first matches for Hull and Rotherham could heighten their interest in Norwood and Towell respectively.

Meanwhile, The Argus understands a deal is on the table for Wigan giant Burn - but Albion are not fretting if it does not come off.

Boss Chris Hughton is comfortable he has adequate cover at the heart of the back four for Lewis Dunk, Shane Duffy and Leon Balogun.

Bruno and Bernardo can both play in the middle. Hughton also has young prospect Ben White, who has been used in the first team squad during the pre-season programme.

Albion have targeted Reading’s Liam Moore and Sheffield United’s Jack O’Connell as well this summer following the departures of Connor Goldson to Glasgow Rangers and Uwe Huenemeier back to Paderborn.

The asking prices for Moore and O’Connell have proved prohibitive in the context of back-up options.
