Brighton are closing on a new technical director's appointment.
The Argus says Albion are close to appointing a technical director, with England guru Dan Ashworth high on their list of preferred options.
Former West Brom sporting director Ashworth has been credited with helping turn England's fortunes around at senior and junior level in his role as FA technical director.
The Seagulls would love to land the 47-year-old but acknowledge he could have the pick of several high-level posts if he decided to leave St George's Park.
Albion have whittled down their search to a shortlist after interviewing candidates in the UK and overseas.
