Aaron Hughes made, for him in the end, an unlucky 13 appearances for Brighton last season before his release at the end of his contract. This wasn’t really a move that worked out was it, he certainly wasn’t in the plans of Chris Hughton as he featured just once for him.

Signed by former Head Coach Sami Hyypia he wasn’t a regular in the first-team under him either, playing just 12-matches but under Hughton as he made just one appearance for him so his release wasn’t in the least bit surprising.

Hughes has no intention of retiring as he still feels he’s got plenty to offer and as much as it’s not a given he’ll be a first choice, no one can ever really be secured of this, he’s told the Argus that he’s looking to continue his career somewhere he’ll have his best chance of playing as much as possible.

‘The move has to be right for me. I’m getting to the back-end of my career now so I’d like to go somewhere I will probably play a few more games than I have this year.

‘At this stage of my career I don’t want to be sitting watching games tick past. I want to play football, it’s what I train every day to do.

‘It has to be somewhere I’ve got a chance of playing. You can never walk in somewhere and expect to play every game, your performances and fitness have to be good, but I’m looking for somewhere with a realistic chance.

‘It’s about staying in contention for Northern Ireland but also for my own enjoyment too.’

It’s understandable the 35-year-old was left frustrated at his lack of involvement at the Amex Stadium as he thought he was brought in to act as Matt Upson’s replacement but that hardly proved to be the case!
