Player to watch – Simon Adingra

Brightyon's 22-year-old winger has really impressed in his debut season, scoring six goals in the Premier League alone. Adingra scored on his return from winning AFCON 2023 and looked very lively during the 1-1 draw with Everton last time out.

Developing well in hist debut season with the Seagulls

Andingra is already attracting interest from some of Europe's biggest teams and if he continues to develop over the next season or two, Brighton will make a lot of money on the Ivory Coast international.
