Brighton excuse Moises Caicedo from training after public transfer request

Brighton have allowed midfielder Moises Caicedo to miss training on Saturday after he voiced his desire to leave the club, 90min understands.

The Ecuador international went public after Arsenal saw a £60m bid for his services rejected – Chelsea have also failed with an enquiry over Caicedo earlier in the month – urging Brighton to sell him and allow him to take a ‘magnificent opportunity’.

Both clubs are expected to make further bids for Caicedo in the aftermath of his transfer request, although Brighton are adamant that they will not be forced into selling the 21-year-old midway through the season.

Despite reports that Caicedo failed to turn up to training, 90min understands that Brighton have encouraged the midfielder to take some time away from the club until the closure of the transfer window.
