Yves Bissouma believes this summer was not the right time to leave Brighton, but hinted that he could soon leave to play in the Champions League amid continued interest from the majority of England’s ‘top six’ clubs.

Bissouma has been a revelation for Brighton so far this season, helping the Seagulls to fourth position in the Premier League after winning four of their opening five matches. 

The Mali international was widely-tipped to leave the south coast club this Summer, with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool among the clubs reportedly interested in the 25-year-old.

But despite interest from some of England’s top clubs, Bissouma says that it wasn’t the right time for him to move on, but admitted that time will come.

I didn’t go this summer, maybe its because it’s not my time to go,’ he told Brighton and Hove Albion.

‘When my time will come, it’s my time, but I’m happy in Brighton, I’m enjoying playing football.

‘My dream is like every player, I want to play in the Champions League, I want to be champions. I want to compare myself on the top level, not just with other players.’

Meanwhile, Brighton boss Graham Potter has remained calm about the situation of Bissouma, who only has two years left on his current deal at the Amex Stadium. 

‘It feels like they’ve been asked for the last few months, so we’re used to it,’ he said.

‘But it’s good, if you’re getting that talk then he’s doing something well, we’re doing something well.

‘He’s enjoying his football. You can’t control what people say from the outside, it’s talk, but he’s happy with us and we will keep working with him.’
