Simon Adingra says it’s a ‘dream come true’ to join the club after completing a move to Albion from Danish side FC Nordsjaelland on Friday.

The 20-year-old forward signed a four-year contract and can’t wait to test himself in English football. 

“Since I was just a little kid, I have always dreamed of playing in the Premier League.” said the Ivorian. “It is the best league in the world and this is a dream come true. 

“I have worked really hard to get here so I’m feeling happy and also proud of myself.

“After talking to Brighton, I knew this was the club for me. It’s exciting. The plan the club has for me is good, and I know they use a lot of young players and play good attacking football which suits me.

“That’s what I love and want to be a part of.” 

Adingra made 33 appearances in the Danish Superliga last season, scoring ten goals and registering four assists, and the right-footed attacker believes Albion’s fans will enjoy watching him. 

“For anyone who might not know about me, I like to go one v one and take players on. I enjoy running at defenders and beating them. 

“I can also score goals and get assists to help the team as best as I can. Hopefully I can do that here!”
