It appears that Brighton & Hove Albion are going to welcome back two of their players currently out on loan this summer.
Those are Kaoru Mitoma and Kacper Kozlowski, as Philippe Bormans, the CEO of Royale Union Saint Gilloise, revealed to Sud Presse, relayed by Walfoot.
It’s stated that both will leave the Belgian side and return to Brighton with different results, as the Pole, who was sent there after his €10m January transfer, never managed to secure a starting spot.
The Japanese winger, on the other hand, has become something of a favourite at the Jupiler Pro League club, and his exit will weigh ‘heavy’ on Union SG.
The 24-year-old has scored seven goals and assisted another four this season in 24 appearances in all competitions, and is one of the main reasons why the club are still on course to winning a surprise title.
They hold a three point lead on Club Brugge with a number of matches to go, and most recently beat Anderlecht 3-1 in a game that saw the Brighton loanee score the final goal from an assist from another Seagulls player on loan there, Deniz Undav (who will also move permanently to the Premier League side in the summer).
All three will therefore return to the Amex Stadium in the summer, and meaning they will either need to convince Graham Potter to use them in his squad next season, or simply ask their agents to find them another temporary landing spot.
