Vicente close to new deal
Brighton manager Gus Poyet has revealed that Spanish winger Vicente is close to signing a new deal at the club.
The 30-year-old made the shock move to the Amex Stadium at the start of last season when he was released by Valencia, though he endured a disappointing campaign due to injury and only made 17 appearances in the Championship, scoring three times. The former Spain international has attracted interest from other clubs, but Poyet believes that the Seagulls are close to agreeing a deal to hang on to Vicente. "I think Vicente will stay," Poyet told The Argus. "What we are trying to do is sort out a few little things that will make sure he is staying with us, in a better and happier situation with us, but I think it will happen at any time."
