Teenager Jamie Hamilton will spend a few days with the Premier League club.

Brighton are weighing up a move for Hamilton defender Jamie Hamilton after taking the teenager on trial.

The Ladbrokes Premiership Accies have announced that the 17-year-old will spend a few days on the English south coast.

Hamilton said on their official website: “The club can confirm Jamie Hamilton has travelled to English Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion, where he will spend three days at their training centre.

“This isn’t something the club would normally agree to, however, given our close connection with previous manager Billy Reid, we’re happy for Brighton to see Jamie in their own environment.

“Jamie will return to Hamilton on Thursday in preparation of our visit to Ibrox on Wednesday, March 4.”

Hamilton, a reported target for Wolves and Burnley at the end of last season, has made his first-team breakthrough at New Douglas Park this season.

He made his full debut in a Scottish League Cup defeat at Kilmarnock in August and has made 10 Scottish Premiership appearances.

Brighton assistant boss Reid spent more than seven years in charge of Hamilton before leaving by mutual consent in 2013.
