Brighton & Hove Albion have agreed a new contract with Finnish international goalkeeper Niki Maenpaa.

The 32-year-old has put pen to paper on a new one-year contract with the club, extending his stay until June 2018.

Chris Hughton said, "Niki has been a great asset for the club over the past two years, and I am really pleased he has committed his future to the club.

"He has not have played as many games as he would have liked, through no fault of his own, but his attitude has been fantastic throughout that time and his contribution to the squad should not be underestimated.

"He has trained hard and worked very well with Ben Roberts and the other goalkeepers at the club - but most importantly, when he has played, he has served us very well."

Maenpaa joined Albion from Dutch side VVV-Venlo in 2015, and he has made nine cup appearances and one Championship start for the club over the past two seasons.
