Albion Confirm Midfielder's Departure From Club

Rohan Ince is to leave Brighton and Hove Albion this summer after they chose not to renew his contract.

The 25-year old joined the Seagulls in 2013 and was named the club's Young Player of the Year the following year, however he has rarely featured for Albion since Chris Hughton took over in late 2014.

The former Chelsea youth player spent last season on-loan at League Two Bury and has previously had spells at Fulham and Swindon in the last two years.

With his deal not being renewed, Ince becomes the fourth out-of-contract player to leave the club this summer. Liam Rosenior and Steve Sidwell announced their departures last month after not being offered new deals by Albion, with Uwe Hunemeier having also agreed a move to German side Padeborn when his contract ends.

In a statement on the club's website addressing the departing quartet, Hughton said, "I would like to thank all four of those players leaving us this summer for their time here at Brighton & Hove Albion. Each of them have been a pleasure to work alongside and have given their all during my time here as manager.

"Uwe, Liam and Steve played a massive part in our promotion to the Premier League just over a year ago and all three have rightly written themselves into the club's history.

"Rohan has spent the last two seasons on loan with Fulham, Swindon and Bury, which has been good for his development, and I am sure that there will be a number of clubs who will be aware of Rohan. I would like to thank him for his professionalism and wish him well for the future." 

Albion have also confirmed they are hoping to re-sign backup goalkeepers Tim Krul and Niki Maenpaa, who are both out of contract this summer. They are in talks with the former and his agent over the possibility of extending his stay at the Amex and have recently opened negotiations with the latter.
