Brighton manager Graham Potter has expressed his delight after Tariq Lamptey put pen to paper on a new contract. 

Lamptey has been a revelation since joining the Seagulls, with his electric pace reportedly putting him on the radar of some of Europe's biggest clubs.

But Brighton have moved to end speculation of a transfer away by handing Lamptey a new deal, one year after his arrival from Chelsea.

The 20-year-old committed his future to Brighton by signing a new long-term contract that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2024/25 season

He said: "We are delighted to see Tariq commit his long-term future here.”

"We knew his potential when we signed him a year ago, and hoped he would have a really positive impact on the club, and that has proved to be the case with his performances since June.”

"He has been the model professional, he works exceptionally hard, is a humble lad and is a team player. He fits in with everything we would want from a player, now it's about helping him reach his potential."
