Ferguson signs new long-term Brighton contract

Evan Ferguson has signed a new long-term contract with Brighton which will keep him at the club until June 2029.

The highly-rated 19-year-old striker has five goals in 10 Premier League games this season, including a hat-trick in Brighton's win over Newcastle in September. The Republic of Ireland international committed his future to the south coast club earlier this week.

"Evan deserves this new contract and he has a very big future ahead of him," said Brighton head coach Roberto De Zerbi.

The club's technical director David Weir added: "Evan is a brilliant young talent and we are delighted for him. He's shown his ability at club and international level, after breaking into the team at the start of the year, and we are looking forward to working with him and watching his continued progress."

Ferguson joined Brighton in January 2021 from Irish side Bohemians and after making his debut in the Carabao Cup against Cardiff later that year he appeared in the Premier League for the first time in February 2022.
