Brighton winger Manu set to move on

HITC Sport understands winger could leave Brighton this summer.


Brighton's Elvis Manu on the bench

Brighton & Hove Albion winger Elvis Manu could leave the club this summer with a number of English and Dutch clubs chasing his signature, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Manu joined Brighton from Feyenoord last summer with the Championship club beating a host of sides to the former Holland under-21 international's signature.

However, Manu struggled to hold down a regular place in the Brighton side and made just one start last season in the FA Cup with his eight other appearances coming off the bench.

The skilful attacker joined Championship rivals Huddersfield Town during the January transfer window on a three-month loan deal, but he did not start a match for the Terriers, with all five of his appearances coming as a substitute.

Manu was recalled early from his loan spell at Huddersfield by Brighton, but he did not figure for Chris Hughton's side as they missed out on promotion by losing to Sheffield Wednesday in the play-off semi-finals.

A number of clubs at home and abroad are monitoring Manu's situation at Brighton and are ready to move for the attacker if he becomes available this summer.
