Ezequiel Schelotto plans for Brighton preseason

Ezequiel Schelotto hasn't given up on his Brighton career.

The right-back fell out of favour with previous boss Chris Hughton but has a year left on his contract as Graham Potter takes the helm.

Schelotto saw a mid-season loan stint at Chievo cut short by a cruciate ligament injury on only his second start.

He told The Argus: “It's a tough moment for a footballer to suffer an injury like that. I'd just turned 30 and it was the first time I'd had such a serious injury.

“I snapped my cruciate ligaments but three months have gone.

“If all goes well, in a month I will start again with the team in England and the idea is in the fifth month to start playing some football."
