Rivals join hunt for Brighton loan star van La Parra

HITC Sport understands Brighton could face competition for on-loan star Rajiv van La Parra in January.

A number of Championship clubs are eyeing a move for Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Rajiv van La Parra following his impressive spell on loan at Brighton & Hove Albion, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Van La Parra is currently on loan at Brighton until the start of January after joining the club on the emergency loan deadline.

The Dutchman has been an instant success at Brighton since his loan move, scoring two goals and laying on one assist in four games for the club.

Van La Parra was loaned out to Brighton after finding himself out-of-favour at Wolves and it is unsure if he figures in manager Kenny Jackett's long-term plans at Molineux.

Brighton are keen to keep hold of van La Parra at the Amex Stadium on a more permanent basis, but are aware his form on loan has alerted other clubs.

Should Wolves decide to sell van La Parra when the transfer window reopens in January the skilful attacker is sure to have no shortage of interest with Brighton and a number of other Championship clubs waiting in the wings to sign him
