Brighton to recall Christian Walton from Ipswich loan to sell keeper to Championship club in January transfer window

BRIGHTON are ready to recall keeper Christian Walton from Ipswich and sell him to a Championship club.

Walton, 26, is currently starring for the Tractor Boys on loan for the season.

However, the Seagulls can end that deal next month, should they want to.

The former England Under-21 international is out of contract in the summer, which means he can leave for free.

Brighton have once last chance to cash in on him in the January transfer window, and they   will trade him in if they can to a club in the Championship.

Walton has enjoyed successful loans at Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic in recent years, so won't be short of suitors.

The shotstopper came through the Brighton ranks, but has only made six first team appearances for the Premier League club since 2013.

He made his debut aged 18 against Tottenham in a League Cup tie back in 2014.
