Brighton and Hove Albion have agreed a deal to sign teenage striker Viktor Gyokeres from IF Brommapojkarna.

The Swedish player is expected to link up with Albion’s under-23 squad from Monday 1 January 2018.

Albion said: “The 19-year-old will sign a two-and-a-half-year contract until June 2020 and the deal is set to be completed when the January transfer window opens.”

Under-23 coach Simon Rusk said: “We are delighted that we’ve moved a big step closer to bringing Viktor into the squad.

“He is someone who has an impressive scoring record for his country at under-19 level and he will add good competition for places in the forward areas.”

Gyokeres was the joint top scorer in this summer’s UEFA European Under-19 Championship, scoring three goals in three appearances for Sweden.
