Davy Propper

New Brighton & Hove Albion signing Davy Propper believes he is ready to test himself on the biggest stage in world football - the Premier League - after arriving from Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.

The midfielder, who played against Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last season, has joined the Seagulls before their opening game of the season, and he spoke about his move to England.

He said, “It’s the biggest competition in the world, so this will be a great challenge and I think I’m ready for it.

“I know Danny Holla, who played here a few years ago, and he told me a lot about the club. He was very complimentary and that was a big help.

“The club showed me a film, so I know quite a few things about the club and city already. Not every club in Holland has a good stadium, and I really like the one here.”

Propper helped PSV to a third-placed finish in the Eredivisie last season, and the Dutchman reflected on his final season at the club, before talking about his own strengths and ambitions as a player.

“We won the league two years ago and played very well in the Champions League. Last year we tried again, but there was a big gap and we couldn't win the title again.

“Zidane was my big idol when I was younger. I like to get into the box and score goals. I think that’s one of my strengths and I hope I can continue to do that for Brighton.”
