Dunk and Duffy sign new Brighton deals

First-choice centre-back pairing have signed on for another five years.

Brighton defenders Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy have both signed new long-term contracts with the club.

Albion’s centre-back partners have extended their stays at the Amex Stadium for another five years, taking them through to the summer of 2023.

The news will come as a boost for Brighton just hours before their home Premier League game against West Ham on Friday night.

“I am delighted for both Lewis and Shane. They have been terrific players for the club; helping us win promotion and establish ourselves in the Premier League last season,” Brighton boss Chris Hughton told the club’s official website.

“They have formed a very good central defensive partnership, and have played a really important role in what we’ve achieved.

“Both are vital members of the squad, and it’s very pleasing that they’ve committed their long-term futures to the club.”

Dunk, 26 came through the youth ranks at Brighton and has gone on to make more than 200 appearances for the club, winning the League One title and promotion to the Premier League.

Duffy, also 26, was signed from Blackburn in August 2016 for a then club-record fee.
