Yves Bisoma is in no rush to leave Brighton this month amid interest from Aston Villa – and coach Graham Potter is “confident” he will stay.
The future of the Mali midfielder will become clearer when he returns to the UK from the Africa Cup of Nations later this month, and he has been pursued by clubs bigger than Villa from the Premier League and beyond.
So Bassuma may wait until the summer to see what other options emerge, as Manchester United, Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham look for players of his own.
If Villa matches Brighton’s valuation this month, which could be north of £40m and as much as £50m, Bisuma would likely consider playing for Steven Gerrard and his ambitious club.
But for now, Bissoma remains fully focused on the Africa Cup of Nations, playing for Mali until at least January 20.
Bassoma came off the bench during Wednesday’s unusual match against Tunisia, which saw her last moments after post-match interviews and without the angry Tunisia team, after blowing up the full-time referee before the 90 minutes were up.
Before Brighton’s next match against Crystal Palace, follow the live broadcast Sky Sports Friday Night FootballDirector Potter said, “I’m sure [of keeping Bissouma].
“I think Yves enjoys football here but with the transfer window, you never know. You always plan something that you can’t necessarily anticipate. We’re in a good place. We’ll see.”
