Sunderland midfielder Bridcutt: Pushing for Brighton transfer was tough

Sunderland midfielder Liam Bridcutt says pushing for his departure from Brighton was the toughest challenge of his career.

Bridcutt had not played for a month after trying to force through his transfer from reluctant Brighton.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "It was one of the hardest things I have had to go through in my career.

"When you are given an opportunity to come to the Premier League and to a great club like Sunderland, with a manager like Gus, you are not going to turn it down.

"It went on for a month and was only done in the last two days of the window.

"It was difficult. At one stage, I didn't think it would happen."
