Report: Leonardo Ulloa to force Brighton & Hove Albion exit

Brighton & Hove Albion striker Leonardo Ulloa will tell manager Sami Hyypia that he wants to be allowed to leave the club, according to a report.

Brighton & Hove Albion striker Leonardo Ulloa will reportedly tell manager Sami Hyypia that he wants to be allowed to leave the club, amid speculation linking him with Leicester City.

The Seagulls are said to have rejected a £7m bid for the 27-year-old from the Premier League newcomers.

Hyypia has stated that he would like to keep hold of the Argentine, who netted 16 times last season as the South Coast club reached the Championship playoff semi-finals.

However, Ulloa will make it clear to the Brighton boss that he wants to be given the opportunity to play Premier League football, according to The Mirror.

Ulloa has scored 26 goals in 58 appearances since joining Brighton from Almeria in January 2013.
