Brighton pay club-record fee to sign PSV’s Propper

Premier League newboys Brighton & Hove Albion have broken their record transfer fee to sign midfielder Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven.

The Seagulls are preparing for their first-ever Premier League campaign and have strengthened in the middle of the park by bringing in 25-year-old Propper on a four-year contract.

Propper has been brought in for an undisclosed fee but the club did confirm that it is the highest transfer fee ever paid by Brighton.

"Davy is a player with great experience of the Eredivisie with Vitesse Arnhem and PSV Eindhoven," Seagulls manager Chris Hughton told the club's official website.

"There is no doubting his pedigree. He's a strong competitor as a central midfielder and will complement our existing midfield players."

He added: "He's a strong competitor as a central midfielder and will complement our existing midfield players, and he is also a really good age at 25; we are absolutely delighted to welcome him to the club."
