Brighton manager Gus Poyet has expressed an interest in bringing Ashley Barnes, Lee Hendrie and Kazenga LuaLua back to the club.

All three have spent time on loan at the Withdean Stadium and Poyet is keen to work with them again.

Poyet is planning talks with new Plymouth boss Peter Reid over Barnes' future, while the Uruguayan has not given up hope of re-signing released Derby midfielder Hendrie and Newcastle winger LuaLua.

The Seagulls chief told The Argus: "Unfortunately, Plymouth haven't named their manager until now. We have just been waiting to find out what they are looking to do with Ash.

"It would be nice to have him back. You can have a player you have seen playing for another team and you like him and you go and try to get him, or a player you already have, somebody you know exactly how he behaves, trains and plays."

Poyet added: "That is the situation with him, (Kazenga) LuaLua and Lee Hendrie, because they have been good for us.

"Of course, everybody has a price and we need to talk about it. It's not easy with any of them but we'll see.

"LuaLua, especially, is attached to Newcastle and we're still not 100 per cent sure whether it is going to happen or not. We're waiting on them more than our desire to get the player."
