Lualua Leaves Albion

By James Hilsum • 25 January 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion have reached an agreement with Kazenga LuaLua to cancel his contract with immediate effect. The winger is now set to join Sunderland on a free transfer.

The 27-year-old was one of Albion’s longest-serving players after joining the club on a permanent basis in 2011, and will now link up with Chris Coleman’s Championship side on Wearside.

Albion boss Chris Hughton said, “The competition for places in our wide areas means that it has been very difficult for Kazenga to play the number of matches he would have liked here.

“He has worked tremendously hard during his time with us and has played a major part in the club’s history. I would like to wish him all the very best for the future on behalf of everyone at the club.”

LuaLua leaves the club after making a total of 183 appearances, scoring 22 goals for the club, the last of which came in a 4-2 win over Oxford United in the EFL Cup back in August 2016.
