Sold Celtic star Beram Kayal says he gave everything, enjoying life at new club Brighton

Beram Kayal is enjoying life at Brighton after being sold by Celtic in January.

Despite swapping the chance of trophies with Celtic for a relegation scrap in England's second tier, Beram Kayal is enjoying his role at Brighton and Hove Albion.

Speaking to BBC Radio Sussex after a 0-0 draw with Huddersfield, Kayal spoke of his happiness on the south coast since making the switch in the January transfer window.

He said: "Everywhere I've played, last time at Celtic I tried to bring everything I can to the club.

"I'm enjoying very minute at the training ground, and have great friends here. I feel at home. The manager believes in me and gives me the chance to play every week and I want to prove him (right) and play more and more."

Brighton are in 19th position in the Championship, seven points clear of the drop zone with three games to go and barring a disaster should have done enough to stay up.

It is not a season objective they would have aspired to when the campaign kicked off, but have had to adjust expectations as 2014/15 progressed.

26-year-old Kayal has made 14 starts since signing for Brighton, scoring once, and has been one of their more impressive performers.

During his efforts at Celtic under Ronny Deila he made only six league appearances in the Scottish Premiership in the first half of the season. The Scottish champions are currently bidding to secure a domestic treble, having already won the League Cup.
