It’s being reported that Brighton are close to a deal for Viktoria Plzen defender Ales Mateju.

The Czech Republic Under 21 international has been a regular youth international from the Under 16 age group and at 21 years old, he already has 50 senior club appearances to his name and that includes Europa League experience.

Sky Sports report that their sources understand a deal is ‘close but not done’ just yet but the implication is this will be another deal that soon gets over the line for the club.

Manager Chris Hughton has already spent nearly £9million on strengthening the group so far this summer and we have seven new faces at the Amex Stadium as we prepare for the coming Premier League campaign following last year’s Championship automatic promotion.
