Former Celtic midfielder Beram Kayal will be departing current Premier League club Brighton Hove and Albion.
It seems the Israeli was a popular figure at the Seagulls after the club put out a tweet announcing the departure of Kayal and branded him as a ‘true professional.’
💙 All the best for the future, @BKayalOfficial.

The 32-year old spent five years at the seaside club. The last of which was spent on loan at Championship side Charlton Athletic.
It’s fair to say Kayal had his injury problems at Celtic which he also carried over to the English side.
With Kayal now being a free agent and it’s clear he and current manager Neil Lennon had a good relationship from his spell at the club, could it spell a possible return to the club?
He will of course still know several players at the club such as Scott Brown and James Forrest, who are still at the club from his first spell, while also being international team-mates with both Nir Bitton and Hayek Elhamed.
The move wouldn’t be the strangest transfer in the world to happen as for such a small fee, Lennon will likely be getting a player he knows and trusts
Although the move would be one that is unlikely. Kayal is getting to a stage of his career where he needs guaranteed game time, and that probably isn’t something the Bhoys can offer him. His injury problems over the years would also be a problem as they seem to come on a semi-regular basis
