Brighton have agreed a fee to sign Alex Pritchard from Tottenham, according to Sky sources.

Spurs are understood to want a package amounting to £8m for the 23-year old, who will now discuss personal terms with the Championship club.

Seagulls boss Chris Hughton worked with the attacking midfielder during his time as a coach at Spurs and tried to sign him on loan in January.

He is keen to bring in Pritchard again but faces competition from a number of Championship clubs including QPR, who also held talks with Spurs last week.

Pritchard spent the back end of last season on loan at West Brom but made only two Premier League appearances.
