DUO PUT PEN TO PAPER

13 May 2015


Casper Ankergren and Inigo Calderon have signed their contract extensions, keeping the long-serving pair at Brighton & Hove Albion until the summer of 2016.
 
The duo were both reaching the end of their current deals but were offered one-year extensions when Chris Hughton announced his retained list at the end of the season.
 
After announcing the pair had been offered deals, Albion boss Hughton said, “Calde has played a lot of games this season and performed well for me. I have asked him to play out of position and do a particular job for the team and he has done that extremely well. He is also an important part of the dressing room.
 
"Equally with Casper, while he hasn't played in the first team since I came here, it is vital for us to have three goalkeepers we can rely on - and we know Casper fits that bill. He is a very good and experienced professional and knows the role well.”
