Championship Brighton midfielder Liam Bridcutt has admitted it would be hard to turn down a move to a Premier League club. He has been linked with a move in the January transfer window to Sunderland where Gus Poyet, the manager who signed him for Brighton, is in charge.

"Without a doubt I've always said I want to be a Premier League player," the 24-year-old told BBC Sussex.

"It would be even better if I can do it with Brighton, but if there is an opportunity for me to do it with another club I think it is going to be hard for me to turn it down."

"I am a Brighton player and as long as I am contracted to Brighton I will give 110 per cent," Bridcutt said,

"If you are doing well you will always get interest from other clubs. It is part and parcel of football really."
