After agreeing a five-year deal with Brighton & Hove Albion in the summer, the Seagulls allowed Jakub Moder to return to Lech Poznań on a season-long loan deal.

Graham Potter’s side can recall the 21-year-old in the winter market and earlier reports indicated the final date to exercise this option was December 15th.

On Tuesday, Interia Sport reported the Polish side have still not received a formal communication from the Premier League club to cut short the midfielder’s loan stay.

The deadline has already passed and Brighton haven’t made it clear if they want to recall the player.

Lech Poznań’s last fixture of this year is against Wisła Kraków, scheduled for Saturday.

According to Meczyki, ‘everything indicates’ the Poland international will play his last match for the club this weekend, before moving to The Amex, even though the English club haven’t made a formal decision yet.

It’s claimed Brighton have been ‘sending clear signals’ to both Lech Poznań and the player that he would be recalled after this calendar year. The website also talks about the December 15th deadline, suggesting it’s more of a ‘contractual term’.

Meczyki states no one at the Polish side will make drama if the communication from Brighton comes a few days late.

Lech Poznań, for their part, are ‘already preparing’ for Moder’s farewell message, which should arrive before the clash against Wisła Kraków.

The outlet are of the belief that if Moder is recalled, he won’t be part Brighton’s busy festive period and would be allowed to take a short break after this weekend’s game with Lech.

It’s still not clear when Moder will travel to England, but Meczyki suggest Lech Poznań expect him to return to Brighton next month, even though the deadline to exercise the option has already passed.

Lech manager Dariusz Żuraw has also admitted he’s not expecting Moder to be at the club beyond this month.

“We should get an official letter [from Brighton] by today. I have not yet received information for it to arrive. However, I do take into account the fact that Jakub [Modera] will not be with us in the spring,” said Żuraw about Moder on Tuesday.
