Kazenga LuaLua wants to return to Brighton on a permanent deal as he feels there is little chance of first team action with parent club Newcastle.
The 20-year-old enjoyed a successful stint on loan with the Seagulls last season until he suffered a broken leg in November.
LuaLua told The Argus: "Alan Pardew hasn't said anything to me and I don't expect him to say anything, because I've been injured.
"We are back in training on July 5. Hopefully by then I will be a Brighton player."
