Brighton & Hove Albion hand trial to Chelsea youngster?

Brighton & Hove Albion reportedly give a trial to Chelsea's 18-year-old midfielder George Cole.

Chelsea youngster George Cole has reportedly been awarded a trial by Brighton & Hove Albion.

It is believed that the 18-year-old will link up with the Seagulls squad when they return for pre-season training next week.

He will then spend a few days training with the Championship side, before new manager Sami Hyypia will then have to decide whether or not to take the midfielder on the club's trip to Spain, according to The Argus.

The report added that both Ipswich Town and Brentford have also shown an interest in Cole, who joined Chelsea at the age of 11.

His contract with the Stamford Bridge-based side is due to expire in September.
