- Brighton sign German striker Deniz Undav for a reported £6m
- Undav has scored 18 goals and provided ten assists for the Belgian leaders
- Brighton would reinvest some of the money they are receiving for Dan Burn
Brighton have reinvested some of the £13million they are receiving from Newcastle for Dan Burn on German striker Deniz Undav.
The 25-year-old has joined Brighton from Union Saint-Gilloise for a reported £6million and signed a contract until June 2026.
Undav will return on loan to Belgian league leaders and join up with his new team-mates for pre-season training in the summer.

Technical director Dan Ashworth said, ‘Deniz is an exciting player who will add variation to our attacking options for next season.’
The Seagulls have had an impressive season and sit ninth in the Premier League standings.
However, their one weakness this season has been killing games off with a league-high 12 draws so far this campaign.

As well as that, only Wolves, Norwich, Newcastle and Burnley have scored less goals than their 23 so far.

Union SG are co-owned by Tony Bloom who has been Brighton’s chairman since 2009.
Newcastle have agreed a package of around £13million with Brighton for defender Dan Burn.
The 29-year-old is yet to agree personal terms but is keen to reach a quick agreement, ahead of an expected move to his boyhood club.
Eddie Howe has been pushing for Burn since last weekend and Brighton have now accepted an offer of £11m plus £2m add-ons after two bids were rejected.
