Tariq Lamptey, recently linked with the likes of ArsenalAtletico Madrid and Bayern Munich, has ended transfer speculation by signing a new long-term contract at Brighton.

The former Chelsea right-back has shone in the Premier League this season, with the 20-year-old’s performances earning cries for a senior England call-up.

Some of Europe’s biggest clubs were reported to be interested in signing him but he has signed a new deal with the Seagulls which runs until 2025.

Brighton manager Graham Potter told the club’s official website: “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.”
