How does it feel to be back?
Yeah I’m happy to be back. I’ve looked forward to coming back and I can’t wait to help the club pick up some points and get some goals.

As I’m sure you’ve seen we’ve (Weston) have been on a difficult run at the moment and not had the start to the season we hoped, have you spoke to Marc about how you can start to turn it around?
Yeah I’ve spoke to Marc and I’m wanting to bring goals to the side for us to turn it around!

What would you say are your best qualities as a player?
I think my best qualities are the work rate I bring to the team, and the goals I can bring to us!

You’ve got an impressive record of scoring 39 goals in 112 games for the Seagulls in your time here (every 2.9 games) – how hungry are you to add to this?
Yeah, I’m very hungry to come back and score goals, especially after being out with the long injury. I’m hungry to get back to where I want to be!

You were last here in the 2016-17 season where you hit a handy 18 goals in 38 appearances – how much do you think you’ve grown as a player in your time away from the Club?
I’ve grown a lot as a player with the experiences I’ve had already at a young age, what with going through the injury and getting through it i feel like it has only improved me as a player. I can’t wait to get back on the pitch and get the run of games I need and to get some goals.

How are you feeling after your ACL injury last summer?
Yeah, I’m feeling good, I’m feeling strong, and I’m looking forward to getting the match minutes and sharpness I need to push on.

Being a fans favourite, are you looking forward to playing in front of the Seagull Army again?
The fans have always been so good to me and I’ve always loved playing in front of them! And hopefully I can score some goals and help start their season!

Personal targets for the season?
Personal targets is to come here, bring goals, get that sharpness and minutes and then push on!
