Lewis Dunk is set to sign a new long-term contract with Brighton.
That is according to The Daily Mail, who report that the defender is set to sign a new deal within the next 48 hours with his home-town club, although the exact terms of the contract are yet to be confirmed.
The 26-year old is a Brighton academy graduate, and has been with the club from their days in League 1, apart from a one-month loan spell in 2013, when he joined Bristol City to gain some first-team experience. He established himself as a stalwart of their promotion-winning side two seasons ago, and has now become an integral part of Chris Houghton’s plans at the Falmer Stadium.
His performances have impressed the Football Association, and he has been linked with a call-up to the England side, although he did not form part of the squad that was named by Gareth Southgate on Thursday for the forthcoming Nations Cup meetings with Croatia and Spain.
