Mac Allister To Stay At Brighton Despite Interest From Clubs

Alexis Mac Allister

Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister has dismissed any transfer rumour away from Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion, saying he is 'happy' at the club.

Mac Allister has returned to his Premier League club after two weeks in Argentina celebrating their dramatic World Cup final penalty shootout victory over France in Qatar.

The 24-year-old impressed throughout the World Cup as he became Brighton's first-ever winner of the tournament.

With the transfer window now open, speculation about Mac Allister's future is increasing amid links to Arsenal and Chelsea.

But Mac Allister only signed a new Brighton contract in October committing his future until 2025 and is content on the south coast.

"I try not to read too much. I always say I am happy here, I don't have any rush to leave," Mac Allister told AlbionTV.

"I feel really good, I'm really grateful for this club, my teammates and all the people who work here. I'm just focused on the next game and this club.

"It was a good World Cup for this club and for the players who went to the World Cup. We know we've got a good team with really good players. This is a tough league, it will be hard, but we will try to finish as high as we can."

Brighton chief executive Paul Barber accepts there will be interest in the midfielder in January, although he will not welcome offers.

But Albion boss Roberto De Zerbi believes it would be the best for Mac Allister to at least see out the season with the Seagulls.

De Zerbi has spoken with Mac Allister and wants him to concentrate on the rest of the Premier League campaign.

"I am happy if he wants to stay with us until the end of the season and I think it is better for him," De Zerbi said.

"For us, for sure, but also for him because this moment changing team in January can be a problem for him. For us, but also for him."
