​Brighton fullback Sam Packham delighted with new contract

Brighton fullback Sam Packham has signed a contract extension following his short loan spell with Irish side Bohemians on loan.

The 20-year-old has linked up with Brighton's U21 squad after a calf injury cut-short his time in Ireland.

Albion's U21 manager Andrew Crofts has said the youngster benefited from playing senior football.

He told The Argus: "It was great for Sam to be able to test himself in a different environment, as well as a different country.

"That will have given him a real opportunity to see what's required to make the step up to a men's first team and it was good to see him make a few appearances for Bohemians."
