Brighton wants Bolton defender Luca Connell.

Luca ConnellThe Bolton News says the 17-year-old limped out of Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Preston North End with a calf strain but is now subject to serious interest from Premier League Brighton and Burnley.
A bid of £300,000 is rumoured to have been made by Chris Hughton’s Albion, who also had two attempts to sign the versatile midfielder turned down before deadline day.
Connell is currently in the last six months of a second-year scholar contract so would be able to move outside the window if Bolton accepted a bid, albeit he would not be allowed to play first team football until next season.
