Alireza Jahanbakhsh has once again had a frustrating campaign with Brighton

Following six points from their last two matches, it's looking increasingly likely Brighton will retain their Premier league status once more.

Head coach Graham Potter will no doubt be keen to strengthen in certain areas at the end of the campaign but to do so, he will have to reduce numbers.

Albion were keen to trim their squad in the previous transfer window and they did to an extent with players such as Bernardo, Maty Ryan and Jayson Molumby departing on loan.

Contracted with Brighton until June 2023.The Ireland international centre back has had a tough time north of the border while on loan with Celtic. The Hoops have struggled this season and Duffy has failed to nail down a spot in their defence. Hard to see him back playing for Albion, while Celtic are unlikely to consider a permanent move. Will likely move on this summer.

Shane Duffy meanwhile went to Celtic on loan last summer but remains contracted with Brighton.

Brighton contract expires June 2023. The Ireland international midfielder has made a solid start to life on loan at Preston following his January switch. Preston were keen to sign him permanently at the time but Brighton were said to favour a loan. Albion are well stacked in central midfield and will have to make a big decision on Molumby this summer.
Brighton contract expires June 2023. The Dutch international has hardly featured this season due to injury and illness. A classy operator at his best but faces stiff competition in central midfield from Bissouma, Lallana, Gross and now Moder and Caicedo. Would like to see him stay get back to his best but the 29-year-old may favour a move to back to the Holland or the Bundesliga.
Brighton contract expires June 2022. The Aussie international lost his place between the sticks to Rob Sanchez and joined Arsenal on loan last January until the end of the season. Difficult to see him back at Brighton - especially after he upset the club and fans with comments made to Australian media. Will likely move on this summer.
Brighton contract expires June 2022: Moved to Red Bull Salzburg on loan last January. Suffered a knee ligament injury with his new club in February and is working his way back to fitness. Would be a surprise to see him back playing at the Amex and will likely depart, either on loan or permanent this summer
Brighton contract expires June 2023. Many fans will hope the Mali international stays this summer. The 24-year-old has been excellent this season and has attracted interest from Man U, Liverpool, Monaco and Madrid. Arsenal however remain favourites should Albion decide to cash in. If he does depart Albion will command a hefty price tag.
Brighton contract expires June 2021. 'Give Welbeck another contract' was the call from many fans after his display against Newcastle. Looks fully fit once more and remains a dangerous and classy Premier League striker. If he stays fit, it would make perfect sense for all parties to give him another year.
Brighton contract expires June 2023. Once again a frustrating season for the Iranian. Was close to leaving last January but stayed and a niggling hamstring injury hindered his progress. Never had an extended run under Graham Potter and this summer could be the right time to depart for both parties.
Brighton contract expires June 2021: Unfortunate to pick up an injury at the start of the season. He was expected to challenge Maty Ryan for the No 1 jersey but was overtaken by Rob Sanchez, who grasped his opportunity in style. Jason Steele is the No 2 and Walton may need to look elsewhere for first team opportunities
Brighton contract expires June 2023. Working his way back from a serious knee injury and could still feature for Albion this season after the international break. An experienced international striker but may look to move on at the end of the campaign to get regular football, be that on loan or a permanent move.
Brighton contract expires June 2021. The Colombian has not featured for more than 18 months after a serious knee injury. Has been involved in the matchday squads of late but has remained an unused sub. Contract expires this summer and unlikely to be offered a new deal
Brighton contract expires June 2022. Made an encouraging Premier League debut against Man City and then came on as a substitute during the 1-0 win at Leeds and has not featured since. Remains in the matchday squad and can offer Potter something a little different. Whether that's enough to keep him next season remains to be seen.
