    Albion weigh up loaning out young hot-shot striker Aaron Connolly
    They(Brighton's management) are weighing up whether to continue his development with a temporary exit or keep him in-house with the under-23s.

    Republic of Ireland prospect Connolly, 18, has scored 12 goals in 14 games for the under-23s.

    I wish they'd give him a PL run out though, even before shipping him on loan. They have 4 forwards. Murray is obviously their main man and rightly so. After that, they have Locadia who has a goal since signing in January. They have the Iranian guy that was at the World Cup who has yet to score and they have Andone who has yet to play in the PL.

    Hughton hasn't done much for us, has he? Froze out Hoolahan at Norwich and barely gave Towell a look in. Obviously we shouldn't be his priority like, just saying!

    Did turn Shane Duffy into a Premier League player, though

    Or did Duffy turn him (back) into a Premier League manager?

    Nah, fair point, I momentarily forgot about Duffy.

    Intriguing stuff from Sky Sports as they link Hoffenheim with Connolly, as well as the Manchester clubs. Hoffenheim is an interesting one as Reiss Nelson of Arsenal is in a hot streak there so there's potential for him to be called back.

    Great hope he goes to Germany. This could be an evolving route for Irish youngsters with brexit likely closing off the flow of underage English talent to Europe which has happened over the last few seasons. Bates the Scotland centre half who moved to Hamburg in German second division was saying the quality of coaching was vastly superior than what he had at Rangers.

    Couldn't agree more Liamo. If Connolly ended up at Hoffenheim I would be happy for him. Even if he didn't make too many appearances for the first team I'm sure he would learn a differen approach to football over there. They produce some fine attacking talent do the Germans (certainly know where the goal is, going all the way back to Gerd Mueller) and Aaron can only benefit from that experience.

    Yeah he'd cut his teeth alright - watching the ball fly over his head all day long and then tucking into the pork pies after the game.

    Linked with Celtic in the Sun. Mentions of Championship clubs there also, as well as the Hoffenheim and Manchester links previously reported.

    Interesting couple of weeks ahead for him. Hughton appears not to be too keen on a senior run for him.
