Dunk signs new Brighton deal

Brighton defender Lewis Dunk has signed a new four-year contract with the Sky Bet Championship club.

The 22-year-old centre-back, who came through the Seagulls' academy to make his first-team debut at the age of 18 in 2010, follows the likes of Solly March, Jake Forster-Caskey and Rohan Ince in committing his future to the club.

Manager Sami Hyypia told the club's official website: "Lewis fully deserves this new contract.

"He has proved that he is worthy of a place in our first-team squad and he has a very bright future ahead of him.

"He has come through the club's youth system and developed as a player.

"It is now up to Lewis to work hard, continue learning and try to earn a regular place in the first team."
