​QPR, Blackburn battling for Brighton midfielder Richards

Queens Park Rangers and Blackburn Rovers are the teams who are battling to sign Brighton midfielder Taylor Richards.

The 21-year-old has been linked with a move away as he seeks regular first team football.

According to Football Insider, both clubs have asked about taking him on loan or in a permanent transfer.

Richards was at Birmingham City during the second half of last season.

The ex-Manchester City youngster signed a new contract with Brighton a year ago that will keep him at the club until 2024.

Richards has only five appearances for Brighton’s first team and none in the Premier League.
