Solomon Marches down to the Amex

Brighton have strengthened their development squad by snapping up 17-year-old former Chelsea starlet Solomon March.

The Albion confirmed his signed for the club after the Seagulls fought off stiff competition from a host of other Championship outfits.

Director of football Martin Hinshelwood told the club’s website, “It got to the stage where a few other clubs became very keen on him so we’ve completed the deal.

“He’s a left-sided player who has good feet and a very good delivery.”
