ALBION SIGN CELTIC YOUNGSTER

23 May 2017

Albion have added to their under-23 ranks ahead of next season.


Brighton & Hove Albion have made their first addition to the under-23 squad this summer, after completing a deal for Celtic defender Josh Kerr.
 

Kerr who is adept at playing anywhere across the back four, will join for an undisclosed fee on a two-year contract, when the transfer window officially opens on 10th June.
 
Under-23s coach Simon Rusk said, “We are delighted that we’ve been able to acquire the services of Josh for next season.
 
“He will be an excellent addition to the under-23 squad, and his versatility across the back four will be a key asset.
 
“We are looking forward to welcoming him into the squad for pre-season, and hopefully he can push on and challenge for a place in our first team.”

The 19-year-old leaves Glasgow after spending five years with the Scottish Premier League champions.
 
During his time with the Hoops, Kerr won the SFA Youth Cup, beating Rangers 3-0 in the final, and also played in the UEFA Youth League, where he came up against Barcelona and Manchester City.
