Tony Bloom says Brighton are ‘well stocked’ despite Bissouma departure.


Tony Bloom says Albion are “well stocked” in midfield despite the sale of Yves Bissouma.

The Seagulls have been linked with several ‘Bissouma substitute’ type players this summer when the Mali international joined Tottenham.

But Bloom has downplayed the need to sign new players.

Asked specifically about Bissouma’s departure, the Albion chairman said: “We are always looking ahead.

“You never know when players can move on.

“But we are well manned in midfield. We have some very good players.

“Of course Jakub (Moder) is out in the first half of the season.

“We wish him all the best. I think the recovery is going pretty well.

“I’m sure like any young player he’s dying to come back but we have to be patient with an injury like this.

“When recruiting, we always try to look ahead.

“It’s not an exact science, but with Yves, who has just a year left and has a lot of outside interest, we knew from last season that there was a very good chance he would be sold this summer.”

Albion have signed several midfielders in recent seasons, most notably Moises Caicedo, Alexis Mac Allister, Adam Lallana and Enock Mwepu, as well as Moder.

You might also be aware of the fact that any new addition would now carry the “Bissouma replacement” tag.

That is, the instant “replacement” for Albion’s best player – and a player who took at least two and a half seasons to reach that level of consistent performance. Tony Bloom says Brighton are ‘well stocked’ despite Bissouma departure.
