Brighton manager Hughton remains coy on Ulloa future

Chris Hughton has cooled talk of Leonardo Ulloa signing permanently with Brighton.

The Argentine scored his first league goal for the Seagulls since joining on loan from Leicester in last night's loss to Manchester City.

Hughton said: "It has been difficult for him because Glenn has played the majority of games and you get into a rhythm.

"I thought he looked a little rusty at the start of the game but he improved as the game went on with a bit of confidence.

"I thought overall his performance deserved it (the goal)."

Asked whether the deal could become more permanent, Hughton replied: "We have him on loan at this moment. He is still a Leicester player and he will come into our thoughts but we have a lot of decisions to make in the summer."
