Sunderland midfielder Liam Bridcutt has revealed that he would welcome a move back to former club Brighton.
The midfielder joined the Black Cats from the Championship side in January 2014 as he followed former Brighton boss Gus Poyet to the Stadium of Light.
However, the 26-year-old has found life hard in the north east and is currently out on loan in the Championship with Leeds.
Bridcutt admitted that he still views Brighton as “home” and would seriously consider rejoining if the opportunity presented itself.
He said: “It was probably my best period in football.
“That was my opportunity to properly showcase what I could do and I had brilliant times there.
“I know the place well and I’d call it home. My first child was born there and it’s where my family started. It’s where my career really started and it’s a club where, if there was the right opportunity to go back at some stage, I definitely would.”
