Tariq Lamptey has committed his future to Brighton by signing a new long-term contract that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2024/25 season.
The 20-year-old has been a revelation since joining the Seagulls, with his electric pace reportedly putting him on the radar of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
Head coach Graham Potter said: “We are delighted to see Tariq commit his long-term future here.
“We knew his potential when we signed him a year ago, and hoped he would have a really positive impact on the club, and that has proved to be the case with his performances since June.
“He has been the model professional, he works exceptionally hard, is a humble lad and is a team player. He fits in with everything we would want from a player, now it’s about helping him reach his potential.”
The right-back has made 19 appearances for the Seagulls since signing last January, while also establishing himself at England under-21 level.
The winter transfer window is open until Monday February 1 at 11pm.
