Brighton have confirmed that Adam Lallana has signed a new deal at the club

Adam Lallana joined Brighton from Liverpool on a free transfer in 2020, and has now extended his stay until the summer of 2024.


After signing his new contract, Lallana hailed Brighton owner Tony Bloom as a ‘genius’ and labelled Roberto De Zerbi as a ‘special’ manager.


“When being asked to extend there were two key factors I considered. Firstly, can I still contribute and add value?


“To know how much the club itself wanted me to stay was very touching. I know how smart and strategic these guys are. To know the value they placed on what I can bring really meant a lot.


“Secondly, it was the club itself. From top to bottom this place is a beacon of good practice, and I want to be part of it.


“The owner is a genius, and his leadership team, people like [chief executive] Paul Barber and [technical director] David Weir, are making decisions all the time in the best interests of the team and club.


“Then of course our manager, Mr De Zerbi. The faith he’s shown in me personally, I don’t think I could do justice in words to be honest but I’ll try.


“He is special, really special. I’ve been blessed to work with great managers in my career and this guy is right up there.


“He teaches, he inspires, he makes teams and individuals better. He’s the full package. When he said he wanted me to stay longer there was no way I could turn that down.”
