Danny Welbeck, Gross set for new Brighton deal 

Brighton boss Graham Potter says Pascal Gross and Danny Welbeck are close to agreeing new deals at the Amex Stadium.

The future of the Seagulls pair had been uncertain, with their current contracts set to expire in the summer.

Potter, whose side finish the Premier League campaign at home to West Ham on Sunday, expects extensions to be announced imminently.

"Pascal and Danny are really close, I think, to agreeing everything for next year," he said.

"I think it's just a matter of time, a bit of formality, so that's great."

“They’re two guys that have played massive roles for us,” continued Potter.

"Pascal, a longer role in terms of the time he’s been at the club, he’s been really important during my time at the club, on and off the pitch."

"The same with Danny. You can see recently in his performances that he’s enjoying his football and he’s injury-free, which is massive for him and for us."

"The squad’s in a good place. You can’t control the summer window but we’re prepared and we’re always looking ahead and always planning for any eventuality – that’s the fun of the transfer window."

Potter, whose side finish the Premier League campaign at home to West Ham on Sunday, expects extensions to be announced imminently.
