Potter delivers Gilmour transfer verdict, Leeds save money


Brighton have enjoyed a strong transfer window, and we’re rounding up all the latest news on the Seagulls and their rivals here.

The Seagulls have already had a strong start to the season as they look to build on a superb last season.

Pervis Estupinan was brought in as a replacement, while Julio Enciso, Levi Colwill and Simon Adingra were also brought in.

Here we round up all the latest Brighton and Premier League transfer news and rumours.

Graham Potter has already given his verdict on new signing Billy Gilmour, who joined Brighton in a £9m deal from Chelsea. He said: “Billy arrives with a fantastic pedigree, having played in the Premier League and Champions League as well as for Scotland at last year’s Euros. He will complement our existing midfield options. This experience at a young age shows his strength of character and we are really excited about his potential. Now it’s all about giving him time to adjust to a new environment and settle into our club. We look forward to work with him.(Official Brighton website)

Leeds have reportedly made significant savings on the new signing of Gnonto. FC Zurich are said to have asked for around £7m but it is claimed Los Blancos managed to secure a deal for just £3m just before the deadline. (The Football Insider)

Bamba Dieng ended up suffering a rather disastrous deadline. The striker appears to be in agreement with a move to Elland Road, with Whites owner Andrea Raddrizani confirming the incoming deal on Twitter. Dieng was reportedly at the airport waiting for a flight to Leeds when an offer arrived from Nice, the one he preferred. But at the end of the day, he failed his medical in Nice and completely missed a move. Radrizzani later tweeted that Leeds had been “screwed”. (BBC)

Hector Bellerin has taken a pay cut to return to Barcelona on deadline day. The full-back has agreed to end his contract with Arsenal after months of trying to seal an exit. Ultimately, he joined Barcelona on a free transfer, taking a pay cut to secure the deal. (first post)

Memphis Depay was reportedly a target for Tottenham on deadline day but no deal was ultimately reached. Partly that was because Memphis was pushing for a move to Chelsea, but the Blues weren’t interested in a deal. In the end, Tottenham also lost interest, leaving Memphis to Barcelona. (Rudy Galetti)

Everton have reportedly made a belated attempt to hijack Newcastle’s efforts to sign Watford star Joao Pedro. The Magpies appeared to have moved forward in the deal before things fell apart, and Everton tried to step in to complete a £30m deal. But Watford rejected the deal, refusing to sell Joao Pedro.
