Brighton chief Barber: Coventry move good for Ostigard

Brighton defender Leo Ostigard is pleased with his loan move to Coventry City.

He was in a lot of demand, not least from St Pauli where he shone last season.

The Norway under-21 international said: “It was a really good loan for me at a fantastic club, who I will always have in my heart.

“I hope I can get the same thing here as what I was doing there, so I'm looking forward to it and I want to try and get a good year for me and the team."

Albion technical director Dan Ashworth said: “Leo has done well during pre-season, on the back of a really impressive spell with St Pauli last season, one which sparked a lot of interest both here and abroad.

“The Championship has been an excellent testing ground for some of our young players in recent years and we want to see Leo to make the most of this opportunity.

“Playing in the Championship presents a different challenge to what he would have experienced last season in Germany.

“We're looking forward to see how he adapts and we wish him well."
