Brighton have handed goalkeeper Robert Sanchez a new long-term deal that runs until 2025.
Sanchez’s previous deal was due to expire in 2023 but he has been handed an extension which will now tie him to the Amex Stadium club for the next four-and-a-half years.
Brighton have moved quickly to reward the 23 year-old with improved terms following his first-team breakthrough this season.

The Spaniard, who joined aged 15 from Levante, made his senior debut for the club in November at Tottenham.
And, since then, he has established himself as Brighton’s No 1 keeping six clean sheets in 14 appearances, allowing the club to let previous first choice Mat Ryan leave to join Arsenal.
Seagulls boss Graham Potter said: ‘We’re really pleased Robert has committed his long-term future to the club, after some impressive performances since his debut last year.

‘Robert has already shown what an exciting prospect he is, with a great attitude and mentality.
‘He has adjusted quickly to the Premier League, and we believe he has all the attributes to develop into a top-class goalkeeper.
‘Credit is also due to Ben Roberts and Casper Ankergren, the club’s goalkeeping coaches, who, along with a number of staff in our academy, have helped Rob and guided him through his development.
‘We are looking forward to working with Rob and helping him continue with his development.’
