Brighton and Hove Albion star Leandro Trossard has insisted he cannot comment on his future amid continued rumours about a move away.

The Belgian forward has been in superb form since the start of the season, bagging seven goals and three assists before the World Cup break.

Over half of those goals came against the top six, with the forward bagging a hattrick away to Liverpool, another away to Manchester City and one in the 4-1 win over Chelsea at the end of September.

It led to increasing speculation about a move away from Brighton ahead of the World Cup, with Chelsea believed to be keen on his signature.

That came through manager Graham Potter, who is known to be a fan of the player after their time together at the Amex and has made ‘no secret’ of his desire to reunite with him.

A disappointing World Cup for Trossard and Belgium saw some of the building pressure die down, but the rumours have not gone away.

Trossard, though, insists he is not listening and instead focused on his return to Brighton after the tournament in Qatar.

“I can’t comment on my future at the moment,” he told PlaySports, relayed by Voetbalkrant.

“I am concentrating on the upcoming games with Brighton. In any case, I am happy that we are back at it. It’s time to put the World Cup behind us.”
