Brighton holding out for significant compensation to let Dan Ashworth join Newcastle early – The Athletic

Brighton are holding out for substantial compensation to allow Dan Ashworth to cut short his notice period and join Newcastle, The Athletic understands.

There is an expectation that Ashworth, who resigned from his role as director of football at Brighton on Monday, will move to Newcastle. It is understood Brighton and Newcastle are in talks over a compensation package for the switch.

As it stands, the 50-year-old is due to carry out a period of gardening leave while on notice, after completing a handover this week.

Brighton want a significant package to alter that, and there is thought to currently be some distance in the asking price and the figures on offer from Newcastle.

It is thought that Ashworth's notice period could even run through this summer's transfer window and into next season.

Ashworth joined Brighton in the spring of 2019 after six years with the English FA as director of elite development. While working in the national team set-up, Ashworth is credited with having a major role in overhauling the England system.

Due to his work at Brighton and with the FA in creating the ‘England DNA’ performance plan, Ashworth is highly regarded in the football industry.

He is also a former footballer who began his career with Norwich City, before holding non-playing roles at Peterborough United, Cambridge United and West Bromwich Albion.
