Anders Dreyer happy with Brighton career plan

Anders Dreyer is happy with Brighton's career plan for him.

The Danish attacker moved to the Seagulls almost eighteen months ago from Esbjerg fB and is currently on-loan with Heerenveen in Holland. He is yet to make his debut with Brighton, but is highly rated at home. Dreyer is a first-choice for Denmark's U21 team.

Dreyer spent his first six months with Brighton at the Amex before spending the second-half of last season on-loan in Scotland with St Mirren. He scored one goal in his eleven appearances for the club. But the 21 year-old failed to see out the season due to a knee injury.

Dreyer, however, agreed to a new loan for this term after discussing things over with Seagulls management. The feeling was that the winger still wasn't ready for Premier League demands and a season in Holland would be of benefit.

He told Bold: "Brighton told me that they don't think I'm quite ready for it, and that's totally fair, instead of keeping me over there without using me.

"They really want me to play. They still believe it will happen.

"But right now, they think there are better players, and that's how it is."

Despite being away with Heerenveen, Dreyer feels he still has the support and confidence of Brighton's decision makers.

Dreyer added: "There is no stress from Brighton, they also take it easy, otherwise they could have just ignored me this summer if they didn't believe me. But they certainly do, so we take it easy."
