Brighton and Hove Albion have released young midfielder Jordan Davies after a spell in the club’s U23 side.
Davies, who is capable of playing in a variety of positions, signed for Brighton from Welsh side Wrexham in January 2017 after impressing during a loan spell with Welsh Premier League side Bangor City.
The 21-year-old immediately came into the Premier League side’s U23 side, netting his first goal for the club against Middlesbrough in the Premier League 2 at the Amex Stadium.
After helping the Seagulls gain promotion to the top flight of U23 football, Davies further went on to play a part in the Football League Trophy.
Davies, who was once compared to Gareth Bale by former Bangor City manager Andy Legg, will now look for a new club to pursue his professional career.
The youngster’s impressions have been good this season, gaining those previously mentioned five assists, but it seems that has not been enough to warrant a contract extension.
Interest should emerge from some clubs in the Championship or League One, and the Welshman could be in a good position to find a new club, with financial issues from the pandemic set to see clubs make cut-price moves.
The U23 system is a very debatable one and it does seem that sometimes, clubs fill their squads to fulfil fixtures, rather than look at bringing such quality through to the first team.
Do you think Brighton will remain in the Premier League? Let us know in the comments section below…
