Nephew of Arsenal legend Bergkamp pitches up at Brighton

Roland Bergkamp, the nephew of Arsenal legend Dennis, has signed for newly promoted Championship outfit Brighton. The 20 year old joins from Excelsior for an undisclosed fee on a two-year deal, though the move is still subject to international clearance.

However, Seagulls boss Gus Poyet does not want too much expectation to surround his new striker.

"The name is going to bring plenty of memories but we ask that people forget about his uncle," Poyet said.

"He has the same name but he is a totally different player to Dennis and we don't want people to compare him.

"Dennis is one of the best foreign players to have played in England and we want Roland to get as high as possible but, from the beginning, we just want people to take him as a young and promising talent."
