RB Leipzig winger Oliver Burke
Burke signed for the Bundesliga runners up from Nottingham Forest for £13 million last August, but made only five league starts for his new employers.
The 20-year-old was linked with a return to English football with Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, although a top flight move is perhaps more likely if, of course, Leipzig allow Burke to leave.
And that is the most likely sticking point for Huddersfield and Brighton, with the German side's manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl insisting earlier this month that Burke would remain at the Red Bull Arena next season.
"He is a player with obvious qualities, but he has brought some deficits with him," the Austrian told The Scottish Sun.

"He’s not been able to show his main strength – which is his speed when he sprints with the ball – because he’s no had as many opportunities as he would have liked.
"He’s not yet showed what he was bought for, but we certainly have not yet given up hope. I believe he will show his qualities and we will still have a lot of joy.
"It’s logical he will take some time to adjust. But a loan or sale is currently out of the question."
Neither Huddersfield, who saw off Sheffield Wednesday in May's play-off semi-finals, or Brighton have appeared in the Premier League as it is currently known.
Terriers boss David Wagner has used his contacts to sign a number of German-based players so far, while the Seagulls have already recruited Ingolstadt's Pascal Groß this summer and are said to be in talks to sign Markus Suttner, Groß's old teammate.
