Albion have hit back at “inaccurate reports” that they have reached agreement to sell Marc Cucurella.

The Seagulls were widely reported this evening to have struck a deal with Chelsea worth more than £50 million for their star defender.

 

However Albbion took the unusual step of issuing a statement to say no deal was in place.

The statement read: “Contrary to inaccurate reports from numerous media outlets this evening, no agreement has been reached with any club to sell Marc Cucurella.”
