No deal: Kanchelskis

The 34-year-old former Manchester United winger has been training with the Seagulls since the start of August and was offered a three-month contract, but Coppell confirmed today: "He won't be joining us.

"It has never really been an issue. He has trained with us to get fit and as far as I am concerned that was the prime motivation for the whole thing.

"At one stage there was a suggestion he might want to sign for us, but we knew right from day one we weren't on the same football pitch as regards finance"
