Lewis Dunk has agreed a new five-year contract with Albion ten years after making his senior debut for the club.

Brighton & Hove Albion are delighted to announce that captain Lewis Dunk has signed a new five-year contract tying him to the club until the end of the 2024/25 season.

The club’s reigning Player of the Season, he has been a key member of the squad and led Albion to their best-ever Premier League finish last season.

Head coach Graham Potter said, “We’re absolutely delighted that Lewis has made this long-term commitment to the club. It’s fantastic news for everyone: the club, the supporters, the team and myself.

“Since I came to the club he’s been a joy to work with and he’s a top player. We are very lucky to have him.

“I think his role as captain is one he’s grown into and one he will do better and better for the next few years.
