​DONE DEAL: Brighton confirm deal for Club Brugge winger Izquierdo

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton has confirmed that Colombia winger Jose Izquierdo is close to joining the club.

Brighton have endured a poor start to the campaign so far and in order to improve their side, the Seagulls are set to acquire the services of Colombian winger Jose Izquierdo on a club record fee, as confirmed by manager Chris Hughton.

He said: "This has been a very complex deal, but I am absolutely delighted we are finally in a position to confirm it is completed. I would like to thank all those involved for their hard work and am delighted Jose is now able to begin work.

"He has already been in Brighton & Hove for a period of time, and been able to meet his new colleagues, but has not been permitted to train with us - so he is now very keen to get started, and we are looking forward to working with him on the training pitch.

"He's a very exciting player to watch, and along with that excitement he will bring pace and creativity to the team; he also has an excellent goalscoring record."
