Levi Colwill, the promising young defender currently on loan at Brighton from Chelsea, momentarily slipped in an interview, expressing his fondness for the Seagulls and forgetting his connection to the Blues. Despite his temporary lapse, the youngster acknowledged his gratitude towards Brighton for believing in him when others didn't, while emphasizing his uncertain future at Chelsea.
Colwill is expected to return to Stamford Bridge under the new manager Mauricio Pochettino. In a conversation with The Athletic, he admitted, "I forgot for a minute," when asked about his return to Chelsea. He praised his current club for their significant role in his development, mentioning their trust in him and his desire to repay them.
However, there is an impending uncertainty on his future as a Blue. The 20-year-old stated "I don't know what is going to happen (at Chelsea). I'm still here until the end of the season."
The 20-year-old defender played a pivotal role in Brighton's remarkable Premier League campaign, which secured them a spot in the Europa League. Manager Roberto De Zerbi has expressed his desire to continue working with Colwill, who, in turn, expressed his enjoyment of Brighton's playing style despite its demanding nature.
Colwill's journey as a young player continues to evolve, with the challenges and experiences he encounters shaping his growth. As the defender prepares for the upcoming Euro Under-21 Championship with England, he remains focused on his current responsibilities, leaving his future in the hands of time and the decisions of those involved.
