Brighton have confirmed we will complete the signing of Swedish striker Viktor Gyokeres from IF Brommapojkarna next January.

We have struck a deal for the 19 year old with his current side for a transfer to go through on January 1 and he will link up with Simon Rusk’s Under 23 side.

He will sign a two and a half year deal in the New Year and speaking to the Official Site Rusk explained about the capture.

‘We are delighted that we`ve moved a big step closer to bringing Viktor into the squad. He is someone who has an impressive scoring record for his country at under-19 level, and he will add good competition for places in the forward areas.’

Gyokeres was the joint top scorer at this year’s Under 19 European Championships, scoring three times in three appearances for Sweden.

Clearly another one for the future.
