A host of Championship clubs are weighing up moves for Brighton defender Adam El-Abd, Sky Sports understands.
El-Abd is out of contract at Brighton next month and as yet no new deal has been agreed with the long-serving defender.
The news has alerted a number of the Seagulls' Championship rivals with the 28-year-old possibly being available on a free transfer.
El-Abd has established himself as one of the best defenders in the Championship and has been instrumental in Brighton's success in the last couple of seasons.
The powerful central defender has made close to 300 appearances and the Egyptian international is a big fans' favourite at the Amex Stadium.
