Oscar Garcia: Brighton have scouting network looking for new recruits

After announcing a £14.7million loss for the 2012/13 campaign, cuts were feared at the Amex Stadium.

They were, however, able to bring in £3million from the sale of Liam Bridcutt to Sunderland in January and are working hard off the field to generate income.

Head of football operations David Burke claims it remains business as usual at the Seagulls, which means Garcia is free to recruit if he sees fit.

He told the Argus: "We don't want to leave the club wanting or the manager wanting.

"There is a lot of weighing up to be done. If you delay it a few weeks, if you were to sign somebody now it would not take them to the play-off final.

"Our job in supporting Oscar is to make sure we know who is available at every club and who can come in and be ready to play straight away. You don't want a loan player who has not played all season.

"With the transfer window ending, clubs squads change as well. They will be announcing their Premier League squads.

"There was quite a lot of activity on the last two days of the window. Players have now become available who were not available and Mervyn Day and his scouting team are looking at them now.

"We would always look to strengthen where we need to. We meet every day to talk about such things."
