It’s always nice to see former Tottenham players doing well once they’ve left White Hart Lane and next season could see two team up together, in an effort to win promotion to the Premier League.
Chris Hughton played 398 games for Spurs before going on to become a coach at the club. Now a successful manager, Hughton is in charge of Brighton and narrowly missed out on promotion last season by goal difference, as the Seagulls finished third in the Championship.
It looks like Brighton are backing Hughton’s ability to guide them to the top flight, as Sky have reported that they are in talks to sign our own Alex Pritchard.
Rated at £8m by the club, Pritchard scored 12 goals during his loan season in the Championship in 2014-15. A number of Championship clubs are understandably interested in the securing the services of the midfielder, but negotiations with Brighton are said to be running smoothly.
It’s never great when a homegrown player has to be let go, but hopefully by linking up with a former Tottenham legend, Pritchard will hopefully be back in the Premier League before long.
