Beram Kayal and Ezequiel Schelotto have both extended their deals with the club.

Ezequiel Schelotto and Beram Kayal have signed contract extensions until the end of the 2019/20 season.

Their contracts were due to expire at the end of this month, but with the season only just restarting after the Covid-19 lockdown they have each agreed to extend their stay with the club.

Argentinian Schelotto made his 32nd appearance of his Albion career when he started in last Saturday’s 2-1 win against Arsenal, having joined the club in 2017 from Portuguese top-flight side Sporting Lisbon.

Kayal is yet to make an appearance for Albion this campaign, after spending time out on loan at Charlton Athletic earlier on in the season which was cut short due to injury in January.

The Israeli international signed for the Seagulls in 2015 from Celtic and has gone on to make over 100 appearances in an Albion shirt.

Technical Director Dan Ashworth said, “We have a very busy period coming up with seven games between now and July 26 so it’s important we have as many options as possible during this period.

“We are delighted that Ezequiel and Beram have extended their contracts through to the end of the season.”
