Brighton face a battle to keep hold of defender Lewis Dunk.

The People says Fulham and Aston Villa are keeping tabs on Brighton defender Dunk, with a view to a January move.

The 19-year-old centre-half has made a great start to the season after injuries to team-mates paved the way for a run in the first team.

The Premier League pair will continue to monitor the former Brighton youth-team captain's progress at the Amex Stadium before the transfer window opens, although both know he will not come cheap.
