Brighton and Hove Albion’s French midfielder Anthony Knockaert has agreed a new contract extension with the club.

The 25-year-old winger signed an extended deal until June 2021 earlier today (Friday 3 March).

Albion manager Chris Hughton said: “Anthony has been an integral member of the squad since his arrival in January last year and I am delighted that we have been able to secure his immediate future to the club.

“This new contract recognises the hard work and relentless effort he has given to the team and I am looking forward to working with him over the coming years.”

Knockaert arrived at the club from the Belgian side Standard Liege in January last year and made his debut in a 2-0 defeat to Rotherham United the same month.

The Frenchman has played a prominent role in the side’s push for promotion this season and has scored 11 goals in 33 appearances to date.
