Brighton have managed to secure one of their top signings this summer as Enock Mwepu has penned a four-year deal.

Mwepu arrives from RB Salzburg for an undisclosed fee and the Zambia international is the club’s first new signing of the summer.

Brighton’s manager Graham Potter said: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome Enock to the club and are looking forward to working with him.

“He will add competition to our existing options in that area of the squad going into the new season.”
