Robert Sanchez

Robert Sanchez signed his first professional contract with the Seagulls in June 2015 after joining the club two years prior from La Liga side Levante.

The goalkeeper, who was born in Cartagena, Spain, started his career playing in the Granotas' academy, before moving to England at the age of 15.

The Spaniard impressed during the 2016/17 Premier League 2 Division 2 season with a number of positive performances, and featured three times in the Checkatrade Trophy, making a string of fine saves against Coventry City in the knockout stages.

Sanchez then helped the Seagulls secure promotion to the Premier League 2 Division 1, via the play-offs, before moving to Forest Green Rovers on loan for the 2018/19 campaign.

He played 17 times for the Gloucestershire club, who reached the Sky Bet League Two play-offs, while also featuring five times for the Seagulls in the PL2 after returning from his loan spell.

The 22-year-old spent the 2019/20 season on loan with League One outfit Rochdale, featuring 35 times in league, Emirates FA Cup and Carabao Cup matches, before the season was curtailed due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

He signed a new three-year deal in February 2020.
