Brighton & Hove Albion have announced the signing of striker Deniz Undav from Belgian side Union SG for an undisclosed fee.
The 25-year-old has put pen to paper on a four-and-a-half-year deal at the Amex Stadium, keeping him at the club until June 2026.
However, he will spend the remainder of the current campaign on loan at surprise Belgian Pro League leaders Union before joining up with his new teammates ahead of the 2022-23 season.
“We are really looking forward to his arrival and working with him from next summer, as we prepare for the 2022-23 season,” manager Graham Potter told the club’s official website.

Technical director Dan Ashworth added: “Deniz is an exciting player who will add variation to our attacking options for next season.”
Undav helped to fire Union to promotion to the Belgian top flight last season, and the club has since gone from strength to strength, currently sitting top of the table.
The attacker has helped himself to 19 goals and 10 assists in his 27 outings across all competitions this term, while he has 35 goals and 18 assists in 52 games for Union overall.
