Turkish champions Istanbul Basaksehir want to sign Brighton left-back Bernardo.

Brighton are in talks with the Super Lig club over a possible season-long loan for the 25-year-old, who made 14 appearances in the Premier League last season.

West Ham and Newcastle are also looking at Bernardo, although the Hammers would have to release players before they could consider making a bid.

His current contract on the south coast expires on June 30, 2022.
