The defender has made 60 Premier League appearances for Albion since joining in 2019.

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Adam Webster has signed a new five-year contract with the club.

The centre-back has made 60 Premier League appearance for Albion since he joined from Bristol City in 2019, scoring four goals.

Head coach Graham Potter said, “Adam has been a really important figure for us on and off the pitch, so I am delighted to see him commit to the project we have here.

“Adam was one of the first players to sign after my coaching staff and I joined the club two years ago and I am delighted with his development in that time. He has captained the team on a few occasions which is a real testament to his qualities.

“We’re looking forward now to seeing him continue his fantastic form from last season into the new campaign.”

The 26-year-old began his career with Portsmouth, making 81 appearances before joining Ipswich Town in 2016.

He spent two years at Portman Road before the Robins secured his signature in 2018, where he remained for a year before joining Albion.

His two seasons with Albion have seen him play a key role in Graham Potter’s defence, as well as contributing up the other end with goals against Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Arsenal and more recently in the 3-2 win over Manchester City at the Amex.
