Andrews Keen on Brighton Stay

Bolton midfielder Keith Andrews says a permanent move to Brighton & Hove Albion is something he would be 'interested' in.

Andrews spent all season on loan at the AMEX Stadium and was a regular part of a squad that saw their promotion hopes come to an end with defeat in the play-off semi-finals on Sunday evening.

The 33-year-old has 12 months left to run on his contract at the Reebok Stadium but says the Seagulls' players, management and, most importantly, supporters have made him feel welcome on the south coast, so much so that he would like to extend his stay into next season.

"It would be something I'd be interested in," Andrews was quoted as saying in The Bolton News.

"When the people are so good to you and make you feel so welcome, the fans have been fantastic, it's a one-club town.

"No-one supports anyone else and the attendances are something that I haven't experienced in football for a long, long time.

"We've got the best attendances in the whole league although other clubs in the league are supposedly bigger.

"It's a club I would like to stay involved in but contract-wise I'm contracted to a different club next season, I'm only here on loan.

"These things are not always in your hands and you can't always dictate where you go and how your career pans out.

"But I would certainly like to stay on at Brighton into the future because I have thoroughly enjoyed it this year.

"You hear a lot of clubs shouting from the rooftops that they are a Premier League club in waiting but this one is genuine.

"The people here have a genuine love for the club and it's one I firmly believe deserves to be in the Premier League."
