BRIGHTON MANAGER CHRIS Hughton says Richie Towell will be sent out on loan next season as the club prepare for their first year in the Premier League.

The former Dundalk midfielder has found opportunities hard to come by since moving to the Amex Stadium in January 2016 and made just one appearance off the bench in the club’s promotion-winning season this term.

Towell featured in two FA Cup games, as well as lining out for the Seagulls’ U23 squad, and Hughton today revealed the 25-year-old will be loaned out to a Championship side next year.

Speaking to The Argus newspaper, he said: “Players like Rohan [Ince] and Richie will go out on loan.

“We have been really delighted with Richie but we are very keen for him to get out on loan to the Championship next season.”

Towell’s only league appearance for Brighton was a six-minute cameo in the 2-0 win over Rotherham United back in March.
