It’s that stage of the season now, not only where you think about going up, down or finishing midtable, but players start thinking about what the future holds for them if they’re coming out of contract.

Bruno is a player that will come to the end of his contract with Brighton this summer and has spoken to the Argus about this.

He is keen to extend his stay at the Amex, he’s come to know Brighton as home over the past two years and wants to keep those roots in place, but knows the way it works and understands talks have to wait after Paul Barber spelt out that contract talks ‘are on hold’ so football can be the focus.

‘I’m out of contract and I imagine they have their ideas. No one has been in contact with me yet but that is football.

‘I want to stay here because I love it here. It feels like home but they take the decision to wait until the last minute and that is a way of working.’

Much like you or I would like to know where our future would lie in our jobs, we have families and commitments that will need paying regardless like the players, with him going on to explain that as much as future talks will be put out of the minds this can’t be entirely the case.

I think the defender will be one we keep but the futures of some would be dependant on what level we’re playing at, the regulars in our Championship side would probably be given another contract if we don’t go up but if we do they might not quite be considered Premier League standard so that could impact on things.

Finishing the season on a high note is a must whatever player’s futures might be.

With futures in mind season ticket holders have been reminded by the club that they have just a week left to make sure that you secure your same seat for next season, whatever league that season might be in.

I do find it somewhat disappointing that we’ve only got into March, with this season still a couple of months from ending, yet Albion are already looking for us to fork up for next season. It’s not really anything new in the world of football though is it.
