Brighton thwarted in striker bids
Brighton & Hove Albion
Brighton chairman Dick Knight has revealed that his club missed out on three strikers in January.

"Hull's Nicky Forster was available and we bid 100,000 but after his recent form we were told he was no longer for sale," Knight told his club's website.

"I also bid 150,000 for Millwall's Darren Byfield and upped it to 165,000 but then they wanted around 300,000.

"I also had a 150,000 bid accepted by Port Vale for Leon Constantine but he has decided to stay at Vale Park."

Knight added: "Constantine is 28 years old and wants to see out his contract to the end of the season and then move to a Championship club during the summer.

"Albion fans will see that Dean Wilkins and I have made massive efforts to bring in quality experienced strikers, with the club being prepared to pay big money for the right player."
