Elphick: New contract
Brighton defender Tommy Elphick is poised to sign a new deal at the Withdean Stadium, skysports.com understands.
Elphick has progressed through the club's youth ranks and has established himself as a key member of Micky Adams' side.
The 21-year-old is tipped for a big future in the game and he won the club's player of the season award last term.
Brighton are keen to tie down Elphick to a new long-term contract to ward off potential suitors of the central defender.
Elphick is believed to have agreed terms on his new deal and is expected to put pen-to-paper in the near future.
