WeAreBrighton.com - Transfers

We review the business conducted by Brighton and Hove Albion in each transfer window as well as looking back at some of the great - and more often not so great - signings the club has made down the years.

The Amex Loan Strikers
Chuba Akpom's arrival made him the 10th loan striker to sign for the Albion in the six seasons since the Amex opened, making it seem like we are on a quest to sign every striker to have played professional football in England. We look back at the good, the bad and the Obika.
Transfer Window Round Up - January 2017
Glenn Murray's loan deal became permanent for 3m while two more Premier League youngsters arrived on loan. This was more of an add cover window than an add quality one while five players also departed both permanently and on loan. Here is what we made of the Albion's business.
Transfer Window Round Up - Summer 2016
There were plenty of bids for Brighton's better players throughout the summer, but the club rejected them all as well as strengthening through the spine of the team. Will that be enough for the Albion to go one better than last seasons agonising miss? We rate the summer 2016 transfer window.
Transfer Window Round Up - January 2016
Five first team players in represented an unusually impressive January transfer window for the Albion. The cash was splashed (undisclosed, of course) on two attacking players while three went out on loan. Are the pieces now in place for a genuine promotion push?
Transfer Window Round Up - Summer 2015
After limping towards Championship safety last season, Chris Hughton was given significant funds to reshape his squad this year in order to avoid the same fate. No players sold and nine new faces into the first team represented a welcome change in policy on recent years debacles.
Never go back - Which players should the Albion re-sign?
Brighton and Hove Albion seemed to have been linked to re-signing every player who has worn the stripes in the last 10 years this summer. So we've put together a list of the top 20 that we feel could make a real difference to the Albion on their returns for 2015/16. Free of charge to you, Mr Hughton.
Transfer Window Round Up - January 2015
It was a quiet January at The Amex with two players in and two players out. Are the club saving themselves for the better options the market opens in the summer? And do we have enough to ensure we are still in the Championship by then?
Transfer Window Round Up - Summer 2014
From fans singing "sign some ****ing players" at Birmingham to 11 new players through the door before deadline day, the Sami Hyypia revolution gathered apace in the final two weeks of August. Here is the full round up of the 22 changes that took place over the summer. Keep up at the back!
Transfer Window Round Up - January 2014
Liam Bridcutt was one of three experienced Championship players to depart and their replacements? Two men who have never played at this level and one with ten loan spells behind him plus the talented Dale Stephens. Not exactly the strengthening for a play off bid we imagined.
Transfer Window Round Up - Summer 2013
It's been a funny old summer as the Albion bought in five players and let 11 go before the permanent transfer window slammed shut and we've signed just two players to contracts at the club with the rest being loans. Here's our round up of the business conducted at The Amex.
Transfer Window Round Up - January 2013
After 18 long months of waiting, Brighton finally splashed the cash on that striker replacement for Glenn Murray. There were two further additions to boost the play off bid while we also bid farewell to three players out the exit door including Stephen Dobbie after just three months.
Transfer Window Round Up - Summer 2012
Tony Bloom has left nobody in any doubt that he wants Premier League football soon after a summer of shopping that has seen eight players arrive with either international or European experience and eight going out - none of whom bar Craig Noone could be considered a regular.
Gus Poyet - The Striker Files
For a man who is constantly bemoaning his lack of new striker and budget, Gus Poyet has done pretty well to spend over 3m on ten centre forwards since arriving at the club just under three years ago. We take a look at the full list of Poyet's striker signings and how they have got on in the stripes.
The 30 Withdean Goalkeepers
Tomasz Kusczcak's signing makes it five goalkeepers in two seasons at The Amex. This is nothing compared to the 30 who were named in match day squads during our 12 seasons at Withdean however. Here's the definitive guide to every one of them - the good, the bad and the Petterson.
Transfer Window Round Up - January 2012
Gus Poyet and Tony Bloom have stated their dislike for doing business in January and they lived up to their words with just three arrivals on loan and one on a contract until the end of the season. Steve Cook and Will Hoskins went out the other way making it a quiet month at The Amex.
Transfer Window Round Up - Summer 2011
For a club that was used to selling it's best players rather than buying, summer 2011 was a remarkable turnaround with the Albion breaking their transfer record three times as they geared up for The Amex and a first season in the Championship in five years.
Transfer Window Round Up - January 2011
If it ain't broke don't fix it so the saying goes and that certainly appears to have been the Brighton and Hove Albion's mantra in the January transfer window with just one addition to the League One table topping squad and one departure.
Transfer Window Round Up - Summer 2010
After leading the Seagulls to mid table comfort last season, Gus Poyet is under no illusion as to what the job is this year. Promotion. He's been a busy boy in the market bringing in 13 new players to help him achieve that aim while 10 have gone out the other door.
Transfer Window Round Up - January 2010
The Gus Poyet revolution has begun with January seeing four new faces arrive and three depart. It's fair to say he doesn't think much of the squads full backs with two of those new additions filling this spots while out the door go Graeme Smith, David Livermore and Kevin McLeod.
Transfer Window Round Up - Summer 2009
In the aftermath of the Great Escape comes the new dawn as Russell Slade shows the door to 13 players and brings in 12 to replace them. Among those going are three who played a big part in keeping the side up while new chairman Tony Bloom shows he isn't afraid to splash the cash.
