Leeds United are reportedly among the clubs interested in Brighton and Hove Albion winger Solly March.

According to 90min, Leeds, Newcastle United and Everton all are interested in signing March from Brighton in the summer transfer window.

The Whites, who will play in the Premier League next season after winning automatic promotion form the Championship, are reported to have expressed an interest in the 26-year-old winger.

The 26-year-old – who is a very versatile player and can operate in a number of positions in midfield, as shown on WhoScored – has been on the books of Brighton since 2011, and although he has progressed admirably, his role in the team has dwindled recently.

March missed Brighton’s best chances against Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers this season, but manager Graham Potters defended him by referring to Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

Potter told The Argus on March 24, 2020: “The hardest thing in football is to score. Even Messi misses. That is how it is but people don’t remember that so much.

“That’s the challenge. We try to help more and get better chances and then you have to back the individual. Keep working and you get that bit of luck. It turns your way and things start to become a lot easier.

“Solly’s performance has been solid over the last few games. He has helped the team, he has contributed to some moments, he threatens in behind their back line. He has done what we have asked him to do and we have been pleased with him.”
