BONG SIGNS NEW CONTRACT

30 May 2017

The defender has signed on for another year.

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Gaetan Bong has today signed a new one-year contract at the club.
 
The Cameroonian was one of four players to be offered a new deal earlier this month, and has now committed his future to Albion for another year once his current contract expires on 30th June.

The 29-year-old made a total of 24 appearances in 2016/17, and made a successful return to action in April after three months out with a knee injury. 



Manager Chris Hughton told seagulls.co.uk, "We are delighted that Gaetan has agreed his new deal, as he has been a key member of the squad in his two years at the club.


"He played a big part in our success and I am looking forward to working with Gaetan again next season, as we look to establish ourselves in the Premier League."

Bong began his career in France with Metz and had a brief loan spell with Tours, before moving onto Valenciennes.


He then played in Greece for Olympiakos and had a brief spell at Wigan Athletic, before arriving at Albion in July 2015.

The defender represented Cameroon at the 2010 World Cup Finals in South Africa and featured for France at under-21 level.
