The 24-year-old front-man was wanted by Sunderland and Watford in January, but Brighton rebuffed their advances.

And Buckley insists that he is no hurry to leave the AMEX Stadium.

"The training ground is going to be ready. Brighton is a club that is going forward," Buckley told the Argus.

"I said that when I signed and it still is, so there is no reason for me to be looking elsewhere at the moment."

He admits it was a 'strange time' for him January, as he did not know what was happening with his future.

"It was a strange time. I just wanted to get back playing. That is the most frustrating part, when you want to be helping the team and you can't because of slight injuries," he said.

"You try and say it doesn't affect you but it probably does in a way, so just getting back on the field is the best policy."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
