Centre-back Lewis Dunk will not be joining Chelsea from Brighton & Hove Albion this summer, according to a report.

Brighton & Hove Albion have reportedly ruled out selling Lewis Dunk and have rubbished suggestions that Chelsea made a £40m bid for the defender.

The 28-year-old boyhood Chelsea fan is rumoured to have been eyed up by the Blues ahead of next season as Frank Lampard attempts to tighten up at the back.

Recent reports alleged that Dunk was on the verge of leaving Brighton, with Tottenham Hotspur also showing an interest, but talkSPORT claims that the one-cap England international is going nowhere this summer.

Dunk has made 306 appearances for Brighton in his decade at the club and has been a regular during their three seasons in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Albion have also supposedly informed interested clubs that fellow defender Ben White, who starred on loan with Leeds United last season, is also not for sale.
