    From the Mirror:

    Newcastle show interest in Brighton defender

    Fulham will launch a new £4million bid to sign Brighton defender Lewis Dunk.

    The Cottagers had two offers refused, but are ready to test the Seagulls’ resolve with another bid.

    However, Dunk’s price may rise as Newcastle are also interested now.

    The centre-back, 23, scored seven times in 44 games last season.

    Nice to see some Northampton lads doing well in Darlow and Toney! Doubt we’ll see Toney for 2 seasons but apparently his attitude is first class and 60 first team apps even at league 2 level by 19 is good experience! Puts him ahead of Arma in development I’d say!
    Mbemba, Lascelles, Haidara, Aarons, Toney, Armstrong, Perez all under 22! That’s 7 players that SHOULD be featuring in the Newcastle first team in the next 3 years. McClaren is renound for coaching and bringing on players, looks like he’ll have the potential in there to put his coaching to the test.
    Add to that Bigirimana who should have come on more, Woodman, Mbabu, Heaney, Longstaff and Brocolli, all of whom have a good chance of making it. Satka and Kemen are meant to have talent too. If 5 from these 15 players become first 11 constants in the next 3 seasons it’ll be a big boost!

    Don’t know much about Lewis Dunk. I know Brighton played out from the back and played passing possession football up until last year when Hughton took over so no doubt he’ll be comfortable knocking it around!
    Needs to make the step up to the premier league now and test himself I think!

    Jay, Don’t forget Mitrovic, he’s that age too.

    Cameo from Carver in this one.

    Lewis Dunk was the highest-rated player last season under the age of 24 according to The Guardian (7.45), the Brighton centre-back has become an integral player to the Seagulls. He made just seven league appearances for the club in season 2013-14 and was on a one-month loan to Bristol City during the campaign, but has been a mainstay last season, starting 37 matches.

    The 23-year-old’s lofty frame means that he is commanding in the air, winning 139 of 212 aerial duels as well as mustering 29 headed attempts at goal. That aerial threat has heralded five goals from set pieces, with only two players managing more. Only Ipswich’s Cole Skuse has made more interceptions this season than Dunk’s 129. That only the current top six and Sheffield Wednesday have a better defensive record than Brighton (54 goals conceded) has been in no small part due to the youngster’s presence at the back.

    From The Guardian – I haven’t seen enough of him to comment.
