BREAKING: Super Eagles Star Completes Premier League Move
Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun has made a switch from Bundesliga to the English Premier League where he has signed for Brighton & Hove Albion.
The 29-year-old centre-back joins on a free transfer after leaving Bundesliga side FSV Mainz 05, and has signed a two-year deal with the club.
Albion manager Chris Hughton said, “I am delighted to welcome Leon to the club. He will add more depth to our defensive options, and I am pleased to get our first piece of business done so early in the summer.
“He is in the peak years of his career and I am sure he will integrate well into the squad.
“He also has valuable experience, having played in the Bundesliga, the Europa League and at international level.”
Balogun is a key figure in the Nigeria national team and he is expected to make the cut to the World Cup in Russia.
