The agent of Leandro Trossard has demanded a move away from Brighton for his client this month, claiming the Belgium international has been targeted and ostracised at the AMEX.

Roberto De Zerbi previously confirmed Trossard would not be part of his squad for Saturday's game against Liverpool after left a training session without permission before the FA Cup win at Middlesbrough.

It was then reported on Friday Trossard had boarded a EuroTunnel service and left the United Kingdom.

Josy Comhair, Trossard's agent, then delivered a staggering response to De Zerbi's comments, claiming the 28-year-old had been unfairly frozen out of the squad after Trossard indicated a desire for "his next step".
