Poyet to turn a second loan siging into permanent deal with £500k bid for Reyes

Hot on the heels of the signing of Congolese wing wizard Kazenga Lua Lua from Newcastle, Brighton are weighing up a bid for another loan star.

The Championship outfit is hoping to land on-loan right-back Gonzalo Jara Reyes from Premiership West Brom despite the fact the Chile international has seen his playing time at The Amex limited to just three matches by injury.

The 26-year-old joined Seagulls in October for three months, but has impressed enough to tempt Poyet into a £500,000 bid as he aims attempts to add to his squad for a New Year run at the play off places.
