Liverpool and Chelsea are among a number of clubs who continue to keep an eye on Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo's situation.

Caicedo has two-and-a-half years left on his contract, and Brighton are aware of the interest in the player.

It is understood Caicedo will move to a new agency this month, thought to be Futbol Division, the same company that looks after his Ecuador team-mate Piero Hincapie.

Speaking this week after Brighton's 4-1 win at Everton, Caicedo said he intends to help Brighton qualify for the Europa League this season suggesting he will not be moving in January.
