Brighton defender Levi Colwill: Chelsea future decision can wait
Brighton defender Levi Colwill admits he doesn't want to consider his future with parent club Chelsea until after the end of the season.
Brighton hold Colwill in high regard and tried to sign him last summer during talks over the deal that saw Chelsea sign Marc Cucurella for £62million.
Speaking after Brighton beat Palace to move six points off fourth-placed Tottenham with two games in hand, Colwill insisted he is not thinking about his future beyond this season.
“I haven't thought about it, to be honest, every day I am working hard and that's all I am focusing on," he said. “If I start planning for the future, then everything might not go well here and everything then changes.
“This is my main priority right now to work hard with my teammates. I have loved every minute of being here. I have learned so much even when I wasn't playing, now I am getting minutes after coming back from injury so I can't complain."
Chelsea are understood to be keen to keep hold of Colwill, having paid more for Cucurella to ensure they did not lose the talented youngster permanently last summer, says the London Evening Standard.
