Newcastle United's highly-rated winger Kazenga LuaLua wants to return to Championship new boys Brighton & Hove Albion on a permanent deal.
The 20-year-old enjoyed a successful stint on loan with the Seagulls last season until he suffered a broken leg in November.
LuaLua is now fully fit again but does not expect to break into Alan Pardew's first team at St James' Park, so Albion boss Gus Poyet will be able to land the crowd favourite if he can agree a fee with the Magpies.
LuaLua told The Argus: "Alan Pardew hasn't said anything to me and I don't expect him to say anything, because I've been injured.
"We are back in training on July 5. Hopefully by then I will be a Brighton player."
