Brighton chairman Dick Knight has reacted to reports suggesting David Gold is planning to invest in the League One club by insisting he has had no contact with the Birmingham supremo.

The Seagulls are now seeking a cash injection to help finance their proposed £50million stadium in Falmer, which got the go-ahead from the Government last month, but Gold would not be able to invest in another club while he is still chairman of City.

Hong Kong tycoon Carson Yeung is expected to complete his takeover of Birmingham by December, which would then free up 71-year-old Gold to invest elsewhere, but Knight told his club´s official website, "David Gold has not made contact with myself, other club directors, or anyone directly connected with the football club about investing."
