Mooy presence key as Brighton close in on Sydney FC midfielder Peupion

Sydney FC midfielder Cameron Peupion admits the presence of Aaron Mooy could sway his decision to join Brighton.

The Argus says Peupion is reported to be closing on a move to Albion's academy, despite interest from elsewhere, by sources in his home city.

The 17-year-old playmaker said: “He's always been a player I've looked up to and admired, so when he came up and said hello and had a bit of chat it was quite special.

“We share the same agent and Aaron was told there was an Aussie boy coming town, and he took me under his wing a little bit.

“I also got to meet Mat Ryan a couple of times, and those boys were really good to me."
