Ulloa loving life at Brighton

19 February 2018 12:12:25 EST

Leonardo Ulloa has revealed that he would welcome the opportunity to make his loan switch from Leicester City to Brighton permanent.

The Argentinian striker is keen to help the Seagulls avoid relegation this season after only being a bit-part player in Leicester's Premier League title success in 2015/16.

Ulloa was often used from the substitutes bench by Claudio Ranieri as the Foxes claimed their amazing title triumph and has struggled to become a regular starter in the last 18 months as well.

He scored for Chris Hughton's side on Saturday as they beat Coventry City 3-1 in the FA Cup to set up a quarter-final visit to Manchester United next month.

Ulloa said: "When I play here I feel different. Wearing this shirt it is different for me. When I had all the options and this option it was easy to say I was coming here.

"I want to stay here for a long time now but we'll see what happens. Leicester was a very nice time for me, wonderful in my career, but now I have to look forward.

"It has been a long time since I have played 90 minutes, maybe six or seven months. I need to play, I need some minutes. My fitness needs to be better."

Brighton are 1212/1 to win the FA Cup this season and 25/1 to be relegated from the Premier League.
