Ahannach Relishing Brighton Chance

Ahannach Relishing Brighton Chance

New signing Soufyan Ahannach has been speaking about his excitement at moving to Brighton and the Premier League from the Dutch Eerste Divisie.

The 21 year old made the move to the Amex the other day from Almere City and whilst he knows he still has to bed in to the club and country, he's looking forward to the challenge that's ahead of him.

Speaking to the Official Site after penning his deal, the Dutchman explained.

'I watched the Premier League when I was younger, so I`m very excited to join Brighton; it`s the best competition in the world and I`m at a fantastic club. Every player wants to play in the Premier League, to have the chance to play against very good teams with great players, so I`m very excited to start.'

Brighton's interest in the player has apparently been long term, as he added himself.

'The club have followed me for a while and I played very well last season at Almere City, so this is the next step in my career. This is a great opportunity and experience for me, and I hope to be successful at this club.'

With 18 goals and 15 assists for his former club last season, he's looking to replicate that form for us.

'I`m the type of player that likes to create goals, both scoring them and getting assists, and I think that will be important for the club. I`ve seen a bit about Brighton; I`ve spoken with Davy Propper and he`s told me there is a nice group of players here. I`ve come from Holland and the competition in England is very high, so I`ll need to get training with the team and see how England is compared to where I`m from.'
