With plenty of speculation, it was only a matter of time before Brighton snared Fleetwood Town’s Tyler Hornby-Forbes.

The 20 year old has come in today for an undisclosed fee on a two year deal and he joins to link up with our Development Squad as he continues his own development.

He is described as an offensive minded fullback.

Brighton’s Under 21 coach Simon Rusk told the Official Site as the deal was announced.

‘Tyler is another great addition to our squad and we are delighted he has joined us. He is a tenacious, physical defender with pace and likes to get forward, so he will give us some good options. He also has significant league experience, having played for the last two seasons in League One. We are looking forward to working with him and helping him to develop, so that he can push on and challenge for a place in our first team.’

Having come through Preston North End’s youth set up, he joined Fleetwood on a free back in the summer of 2014, and in his time with them he made 38 appearances, with a return of two goals.
