Joseph Tomlinson excited about Brighton move

Joseph Tomlinson is delighted with his move to Brighton.

The defender will join next month in a Bosman deal from Yeovil Town.

He said, “I'm delighted to be able to say that I am a Brighton player and I've always dreamed about signing my first contract.

“I learned of their interest very quickly; I came on trial and I am happy that we got a deal done.

“This is the next step in my development, I am really looking forward to it and hopefully I can move on to the next level of football."

Tomlinson highlighted his attributes as a player and is looking forward to joining the club's under-23 squad at such an exciting time following their promotion.

“I am an attacking full-back; I like to get forward and score goals, but I also know how to keep my discipline.

“I defend well, I am very good at one-v-ones and stopping goals as well as scoring them.

“I've been following how well the team has done; I watched the County Cup Final and it's great to come at such an important time for the under-23s.

“It'll be great to play against such great teams following promotion, and it's just a dream come true."
