Hunt, who is a regular for Brighton’s under-21 side, has yet to make his senior debut for the club.

But the highly-rated 21-year-old, who can play at either left or right-back, has featured in all of the Seagulls’ pre-season games this summer.

And it is understood boss Chris Hughton does not want to let Hunt leave, with a first-team breakthrough imminent.
