Sam Baldock scored 11 league goals for Albion last season.

Brighton & Hove Albion striker Sam Baldock has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal, which keeps him at the club until the end of the 2019/20 season.
 
The 28-year-old’s current contract was due to run until the end of next season, and the striker says he is delighted to pledge his future to the Albion.
 
Baldock said, “As soon as the club made noises that they wanted to extend my contract it was always in my head that this is where I want to be.
 
“Last season was probably the pinnacle of my career, and I hope now we can establish ourselves in the Premier League and continue to improve together.”
 
Manager Chris Hughton said, “We are delighted that Sam has agreed a new deal with us. He has been a key member of the squad since he arrived at the club and this new contract is recognition of his contribution over the last couple of seasons.
 
“He’s also a great professional and a good character in the dressing room, so we are pleased he will be with us for the next few seasons."
 
Baldock was brought to the Amex by then-manager Sami Hyypia in the summer of 2014 after winning the League One Golden Boot in the previous campaign for Bristol City.
 
He has since made 88 appearances, finding the net 20 times – including 12 last season as he helped fire Albion to automatic promotion.
