Jensen Weir joined Albion at the beginning of last season from Wigan.

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Jensen Weir is joining League One club Cambridge United on a season-long loan.

Weir, 19, joined Albion from Wigan Athletic in 2020 and was a regular for the under-23s last season, making 18 appearances and scoring four goals.

Under-23s head coach Andrew Crofts said, “Jensen made a really good impression last season and this is the next step for him in terms of his development.

“He is going to a club just promoted to League One so he will get the opportunity to play at a high level and develop his own game in a good environment.

“As with all our loan players, we will be monitoring his progress and wish him all the best for the season.”
