Brighton ready to keep hold of captain Lewis Dunk

It was a nail-biting end to the season for Brighton & Hove Albion, as they only ensured their Premier League status on the penultimate day of the season.

However, according to The Argus, the club are happy for Lewis Dunk to remain as skipper for the coming season.

He is 95% certain to be skippering the Seagulls under new head coach Graham Potter, according to a well-placed source.

Speculative reports have been linking Dunk to Leicester as part of a transfer triangle involving England's Harry Maguire and Portsmouth's Matt Clarke.

Although an exit from the Amex for Dunk cannot be completely ruled out, The Argus understands the reports are wide of the mark.
