Brighton could be set for a boost to their midfield department in the January transfer window by recalling Jakub Moder from Lech Poznan.
Moder signed from the Polish club for £2.7m in the summer on the condition that he was immediately loaned back until the end of the season, but Brighton do have the option to cut that agreement short.
The 21-year-old has been in brilliant form for his club this season, scoring four goals in nine games from a defensive midfield position, somewhere Brighton haven’t been blessed with options since selling Dale Stephens in the summer.
Moder also scored his first goal for his country in November, netting in a friendly win over Ukraine to boost his reputation as one of Poland’s most promising prospects.
Lech president Karol Klimczak and vice-president Piotr Rutkowski are of the belief Moder will benefit if he continues in the country for the next few months, and would ideally like to keep him for the full season.
However, if Poznan fall out of the Europa League before Christmas, as it looks like they might, Brighton could be forgiven for recalling the 6 foot 3 midfielder to boost their own hopes.
