Brighton chairman says won't break the bank after Premier League promotion

Asked what his club will bring to the Premier League, Bloom replied: 'A great city, a great fan base, an incredible stadium sold out every game, and hopefully on the pitch we will do the city and our supporters proud. Bloom's biggest score came in 2011 after finishing runner-up at the A$100,500 Aussie Millions Poker Championship for A$975,000 ($964,296), and previous year, "The Lizard" also entered the $1 million buy-in Monte-Carlo One Drop Extravaganza.

Brighton are going up into the Premier League for the first time and into the top tier of English for the first time since 1983.

"It's fantastic and a great feeling", he told Brighton's official website.

He added in The Argus: "We're not there for just one season, we intend to be there for a while". If anyone deserves it, it's this football club.

Moreover, to see the Seagulls come up to Selhurst and leave wondering why they can't topple the Eagles is something I very much look forward to.

After leaving the Foxes in the summer of 2015, Knockaert spent seven months in Belgium with Standard Liege before being brought back to England by Albion boss Chris Hughton.

Nearly 20 years to the day that they were half-an-hour from slipping out of the Football League entirely, Brighton & Hove Albion have gone and all but secured themselves promotion to the Premier League.

Bloom also praised manager Chris Hughton, who arrived at the Amex in 2014 when Brighton were struggling near the bottom of the second division. "It was a long way to the dressing room and it was a really nice feeling and everyone was over the moon".

The 58-year-old told talkSPORT: "This club has Premier League facilities - the stadium and the training ground are exceptional, but of course, it's ok having the facilities, you've got to be a Premier League team. It was unbelievable and all of the people involved in this football club deserve it".

Newcastle United's position is less secure, though, with their defeat to Ipswich Town and Reading's win over Rotherham United meaning they are six points above Jaap Stam's men with three games to play.
