Brighton recall highly-rated Jakub Moder, 21, from loan transfer at Lech Poznan to bolster midfield options

BRIGHTON have recalled Jakub Moder from his loan at Lech Poznan.

The highly-rated midfielder, 21, was signed by Albion in October for £6million from the Polish giants.

Moder was brought in on a five-year deal but was immediately farmed back out to Poznan.

Brighton's plan was always to review the situation ahead of the January window.

Moder has enjoyed an impressive campaign involving 22 appearances – including eight in the Europa League – and five goals.

On the back of his red-hot form, the Seagulls have decided to bring him back for the second-half of the season.

Boss Graham Potter said: “Jakub has enjoyed a few really good months with both Poznan and Poland.

"He's playing in a top European competition as well as making his international debut.

“It was always an option to bring him back and have a good look at what he has to offer and how he has developed.

"We believe he can have an impact on the first team group.”

The return of Moder could prove even more important for Brighton after Real Madrid and Manchester United joined Liverpool in the hunt for star man Yves Bissouma.

It is claimed Brighton could demand up to £37million for their man.

Bissouma's agent Michael N’Cho has revealed there is interest from six clubs including United, Liverpool, Arsenal, two LaLiga sides and Monaco.
