Newcastle are reported to be among the clubs showing an interest in Brighton central defender Lewis Dunk ahead of the summer window.
The Magpies are on the look out for a new central defender as reports claim Fabricio Colocinni and Steven Taylor will be heading for the exit door this summer, and Dunk is said to be a target.
Dunk was linked with a switch to St James’ Park in January but the Seagulls managed to keep hold.
The youngster has been a revelation in the heart of the Seagulls defence this season as Chris Hughton’s side have mounted a push for promotion to the Premier League.
Brighton head into the final two games of the season with a real chance of winning automatic promotion and depending on how successful they are, will determine where Dunk plays his football next season.
There is a chance Brighton could be swapping places with Newcastle, who face a fight to stay in the top flight, and any potential move is on hold until everyone knows just exactly where they will be next season.
Norwich and Crystal Palace are also thought to be interested.
