The defender disclosed that the Seagulls’ journey to the top-flight and how they adapted last season was motivating enough for a switch

Brighton and Hove Albion’s journey to reaching the English Premier League and maintaining that status was enough to convince Leon Balogun to become the club’s first summer signing.

The defender fulfilled his ‘dream’ of turning out in the English top-flight after agreeing to a two-year deal with the Seagulls – who finished 15th in 2017-18 campaign – as a free transfer after his contract with Mainz 05 expired.

“I always had a dream to play in the Premier League, and Brighton was one of the first teams to show an interest in me,” Balogun told club website.

“I’ve been following English football as much as I can in Germany, and I saw how they got promoted from the Championship.
