Championship News: Brighton Interested In Blades Boss, Arsenal Scout Bristol City Starlet & Leeds Begin Talks For League Two Star

Chris Wilder

Brighton are considering approaching Sheffield United to hire manager Chris Wilder, according to the Football Insider.

The website reports the Seagulls have grown frustrated in their attempts to appoint Swansea boss Graham Potter and have shortlisted Wilder as one of two other potential candidates.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Southampton are all reportedly scouting Bristol City centre-back Lloyd Kelly.

The 20-year-old is highly rated by the coaching staff at Ashton Gate with manager Lee Johnson saying he should be on the watchlist of Premier League scouts.

Local media reports suggested Southampton wanted to sign Kelly in January but the Robins demanded £15m for the defender. That price may have risen since then.

Reports in the English media indicate Leeds have begun talks with Forest Green Rovers over signing attacking midfielder Reece Brown.

The 23-year-old has scored 11 goals and provided 15 assists in 45 games this season, helping the League Two side into the playoffs.
