The Republic of Ireland midfielder featured in both of Bolton's opening fixtures of the season but was informed last Thursday that Brighton were interested.

"From there it happened very quickly and I arrived in Brighton on Friday evening," said Andrews.

"Nobody really had the decency to even phone me as I was leaving. I think I deserve a little bit more respect than that, I suppose.

"I always felt I'd done things well at that club, been very professional and treated people like I like to be treated.

"To end on that note was a bit sour but you can't be surprised by anything in football. It came as a bit of a bolt out of the blue as I featured heavily in pre-season.

"However, I've dusted myself down and am very excited to be at Brighton."

Andrews made his Brighton debut in last weekend's home defeat by Derby and is confident he can make a positive contribution.

"I have still got a huge appetite for the game and I feel I can have a big impact here," said the 32-year-old.

"I don't have anything to prove to Bolton. I just have things to prove to myself and want to prolong my career for as long as possible and play at the highest level I can for as long as I can.

"I have come into a squad that has a wealth of experience and ability that will make me be the player I know I can be."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
