Midfielder Alan Navarro close to Brighton return

Navarro has made 43 appearances for Brighton since joining in August 2009

Brighton midfielder Alan Navarro could make his return to the first team at the end of the month.

The 29-year-old ruptured his cruciate ligament during the Seagulls' Carling Cup defeat by Northampton in August and has not featured since.

Assistant manager Mauricio Taricco told BBC Sussex: "He's training really hard and coming in strong.

"He'll be like a new signing. I looked at him running the other day and he's looking in good shape."

He added: "Hopefully at the end of this month he will be joining us."
