Seagulls move for Latvian prospect
Albion are close to capturing the signature of young Latvian international Vitalijs Maksimenko, according to Sky Sports.
A deal has reportedly been agreed with Skonto Riga, where the 22-year-old won the Player of the Season award for the Latvian side in the 2011/12 campaign.
Predominantly a left-sided player, Maksimenko has drawn plenty of interest in recent months, and Poyet looks to have beaten off competition from higher-ranked clubs for his signature.
Sky Sports believe the move is likely to be completed over the next couple of days.
