Brighton & Hove Albion took Jakub Moder from Lech Poznań during the final stretch of the last window.

The midfielder signed a five-year deal at The Amex and was immediately loaned back until the end of the season.

As part of the deal, the Seagulls retain an option to recall the 21-year-old in the winter market.

Over the past few days, reports in Poland have stated Graham Potter’s side will bring the Poland international back when the transfer window reopens in January.

According to Interia Sport, Lech Poznań have so far not received any official request from the Premier League side and will have time until December 15th to do so.

A source involved in Moder’s deal has told the outlet that Lech Poznań wouldn’t have agreed his sale if the English club didn’t agree to send him to the club on a loan deal.

“The English club did not want to give Kuba [Jakub] to Lech from the beginning, but they had to agree to such a solution, otherwise they would not have closed the transfer. The signals they send today clearly show that they want Moder at home in winter,” a source said.

It’s claimed those in charge at Poznań want the Brighton owned midfielder to finish the season at the club. Lech president Karol Klimczak and vice-president Piotr Rutkowski are of the belief Moder will benefit if he continues in the country for the next few months.

Interia Sport further adds: “So far, Kuba’s earlier departure is only rumours in the media. But the fact is that an email about the shortening of the loan may come at any time.”
