Brighton deal close for NAC defender Jan Paul van Hecke

Brighton are in advanced talks to sign NAC Breda defender Jan Paul van Hecke.

The young centre-half, who came close to joining AS Monaco in January, is set to move to Brighton for a fee of around €2m, says BN DeStem.

However, Van Hecke will be immediately returning to Holland for the new season, where he'll play on-loan with FC Utrecht.

The stopper has a contract with NAC to 2022.

Brighton have already raided the Dutch transfer market once this summer with a swoop for Ajax defender Joel Veltman.
