Albion boss Graham Potter has revealed he is happy with his attacking options after giving the green light to Florin Andone's season-long loan move to Galatasaray.

The promotion of youngsters Aaron Connolly and Steven Alzate to the first-team squad has enabled a squad reshuffle which sees Andone and Jurgen Locadia loaned out to Turkey and Germany respectively.

The Seagulls brought in Leandro Trossard and Neal Maupay during the summer and Potter is happy with the resources at his disposal.


Potter said: “We are comfortable with our attacking options in terms of the players already here, those we’ve recruited, and on the back of the progress made by both Aaron Connolly and Steven Alzate.

“Both players have earned their opportunity, and are demonstrating their capability at this level. Aaron is a good addition to our goalscoring options alongside Glenn Murray and Neal Maupay.

“Steven also provides an extra attacking option from wide positions, playing just off a striker and in midfield — alongside the likes of Leandro Trossard, Pascal Gross, Solly March, Alireza Jakhanbaksh, and Yves Bissouma and Jose Izquierdo, once they are both back to full fitness.”
