West Bromwich Albion have held talks with Brighton over a move for centre-back Shane Duffy.
The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international is viewed by West Brom boss Slaven Bilic as a player who can add no-nonsense defending and Premier League experience to his side as they look to re-establish themselves in the top flight.
Brighton have an abundance of centre-backs after recently adding Joel Veltman from Ajax though they have interest from Premier League rivals in Lewis Dunk and Ben White, who was outstanding on loan at Leeds United last season.

Duffy has also been considered by West Ham but his former Everton manager David Moyes is restricted by a tight budget. West Ham need to sell before they can buy and interest in their fringe players has been slow.
Forward Albian Ajeti is one expected to leave imminently after further talks were held with Celtic last week over a prospective loan with view to £5.5m permanent deal.
West Brom are also among the clubs in for Wigan Athletic pair Antonee Robinson and goalkeeper David Marshall.
