Leo Ostigard’s future at Brighton remains unclear.

The 21-year-old has entered the final year of his contract at Albion after they triggered the one-year extension on the three year-deal he signed back in 2018.

But at the moment he is not sure where his longer-term future lies.

Ostigard has spent the last two seasons out on loan at St Pauli and Coventry respectively, but after being a regular and impressing in both of those loans spells could he work his way into head coach Graham Potter’s plans for their upcoming Premier League campaign?

He made his first-team debut for Albion on Saturday in their goalless draw at Ibrox, where he put in an impressive display after coming on as part of a second half 11.

Ostigard was given the tough role of marshalling a back four which contained three Under-23s in Ayo Tanimowo, Ansef Tsoungui and James Furlong.

Potter (pictured) will be looking for a replacement for Ben White, who is set to complete his big money move to fellow Prem side Arsenal soon and pre-season could give him the perfect chance to assess his options within the current squad.

However, Ostigard is not only centre back looking to work his way into Potter’s plans with Shane Duffy also hoping to catch the eye with his displays.

The Republic of Ireland international like Ostigard spent last season out on loan, where he a tough spell at Celtic.

But after Ostigard’s performance in the draw at Ibrox, Potter admitted he has been impressed with him since he has returned from his loan.

He told The Argus: “He has done well, he has been good in training and I thought today (Saturday) he did really well, defended his box well and showed good composure on the ball.

“So he was a real positive from the game, he is a young player who had a really good loan last season.

“He is in that position where we will make a real good assessment of him, find out what the right thing is for him to do in terms of progressing his career, but he has certainly done well so far.”

Potter’s thoughts on Ostigard means that the defender could be in for an interesting few weeks, which could shape whether his future lies at Albion or away from the club.

The Norwegian international will certainly have plenty of suitors if the Seagulls decided to loan him out again or the more likely option given the time remaining on his contract would be to cash in and sell him.

One of the clubs that would be keen to sign him is Coventry, where he spent last season on loan.

Ostigard played a key role in keeping the Sky Blues in the Championship.

He made 39 appearances, scoring three goals and getting two assists.

Coventry boss Mark Robins has stated on a couple of occasions since Ostigard’s loan ended that if was available then they would be ‘interested’ in him.

Ostigard stated in an interview in April that is ‘relaxed about his future’ but wants to be playing regular first-team football.
