It was noted that the £22m-rated defender arrives in London for further talks to re-join his former boss Roberto De Zerbi

Although inhouse sources states that Brighton bid is close to €11m but it’s still far from Shakhtar Donetsk expectation.

Shakhtar want €30m fee to sell the Ukrainian centre back in January.

The 26-year-old left sided centre-back is in London this week, as discussions over a potential move continue, but his club remain firm on his value of around £22million.

The Seagulls have been tracking the defender throughout the January transfer window, as they look to add depth to their defence following an injury to the on-loan Levi Colwill.
