Solly March was not exactly a frequent starter in Brighton’s first ever Premier League campaign.
In fact, the 23-year-old was included in the first XI on just 18 occasions. But, regardless of the amount of time he spent on the Seagulls' bench, it seems that March still managed to turn the heads of a number of other Premier League sides.
TEAMtalk reported on Thursday that Everton approached Brighton about potentially signing the England U21 ace. But March is instead set to sign a lucrative new contract with Chris Hughton’s side, extending a deal that currently runs until 2020.
Everton are not the only club March appears to have snubbed however.
The Mirror (live blog, 6.42am) claims that both Fulham and Burnley were interested in the versatile midfielder, who featured most regularly on the left side in 2017/18.
Newly promoted Fulham have shown plenty of ambition in the transfer market recently, but March might have been seen as a realistic alternative to the Bordeaux winger Malcom, who is attracting interest from arguably ‘bigger’ teams.
Burnley, meanwhile, are hoping to balance domestic and European commitments next season so need to add depth to a strong yet small squad.
But it seems that March is more than happy with life at the Amex instead.
