Brighton & Hove Albion close in on Anthony Knockaert capture

Brighton & Hove Albion reach an agreement with Standard Liege to sign former Leicester City winger Anthony Knockaert.

Standard Liege have agreed to sell former Leicester City winger Anthony Knockaert to Championship outfit Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Belgian side announced on their website this evening that Knockaert was due to travel to England to discuss personal terms with the Seagulls.

The 24-year-old will leave Liege after just half a season with the club. He joined them on a free transfer last summer after being released by Leicester, going on to score five goals in the Belgian top flight.

During his time with Leicester between 2012 and 2015, Knockaert scored 13 goals in 93 appearances and played a key part in the club's 2014 promotion to the Premier League.
