Yesterday afternoon Brighton announced the signing of Norwegian youngster Mathias Normann.

He comes in from Norwegian second division side FK Bodo/Glimt and the 21 year old has spent the last four years with them, making a total of 42 appearances, scoring three times.

He comes into the Amex Stadium on a three year contract for an undisclosed fee and the player is predominantly a central midfielder.

He will go into our Under 23 squad but manager Chris Hughton told the Official Site that he had hopes that the youngster would soon work his way into first team plans once he’d settled and adjusted to life at the club and in the country.

‘We are delighted that we`ve been able to bring Mathias to the club. He is a talented and versatile young player, who already has good experience playing regular senior football in Norway. We are looking forward to welcoming him into the club, and his longer-term plan will be to break into the first-team group.’

He is a Norwegian international and Under 17 and Under 18 level.
