Brighton have broken their club transfer record, all in effort to sign dutch midfielder, Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven.
His arrival represents the second time this summer, following the signing of goalkeeper Mathew Ryan, that Brighton have broken their transfer record.
The 25-year-old has signed a four-year contract after joining the Premier League club for an undisclosed fee.
Propper will be joining the likes of Markus Suttne, Pascal Gross, Mathias Normann and Izzy Brown as new signings at the south coast side this summer.
According to said manager Chris Hughton on the club’s website, “Davy is a player with great experience of the Eredivisie with Vitesse Arnhem and PSV Eindhoven,”
“There is no doubting his pedigree: Davy has played a number of matches in the Champions League for PSV, as well as international football for the Netherlands.
“He’s a strong competitor as a central midfielder and will complement our existing midfield players, and he is also a really good age at 25; we are absolutely delighted to welcome him to the club.”
“It’s the biggest competition in the world, so this will be a great challenge and I think I’m ready for it,” he said.
“I know Danny Holla, who played here a few years ago, and he told me a lot about the club. He was very complimentary and that was a big help.
“The club showed me a film, so I know quite a few things about it and the city already. Not every club in Holland has a good stadium, and I really like the one here.”
Propper joined PSV from Vitesse Arnhem in 2015, and featured in the team that won the 2015/16 Eredivisie title.
