Brighton To Break Record Fee Again

Brighton To Break Record Fee Again

Brighton have confirmed we are close to a new club record transfer for Club Brugge winger Jose Izquierdo.

A fee has been agreed for the Colombian international with Club Brugge and personal terms have also been agreed with the 25 year old player, and he is now due in the UK in the next 24 hours to undergo a medical and complete the necessary paperwork to gain his international clearance and then he will be ours.

Brighton haven't released the size of the fee to be paid but it's speculated it's in the region of £13.5million, and it would be a new club record - the third time we have broken that record this summer.

Speaking to the Official Site manager Chris Hughton explained.

'Jose is someone we have been aware of for sometime and has been one of the standout players in the Belgian league over the past three years. He's been an exciting player for Club Brugge and in the season he helped the club win the title in 2015/16, he was also Belgium's Player of the Year. Jose has good experience with almost 250 senior games in both Colombia and Belgium, and has played in the Europa League, Champions League and international football, having made his debut for his national team this summer.'
