Super Eagles centre-back Leon Balogun has joined Brighton on a two-year deal.

The English Premier League (EPL) club announced the signing of Balogun on Tuesday.

“Brighton & Hove Albion have completed the signing of Nigeria international defender Leon Balogun,” the statement read.

The 29-year-old defender joins the club on a free transfer after leaving Bundesliga side FSV Mainz 05.

Albion manager Chris Hughton said: “I am delighted to welcome Leon to the club. He will add more depth to our defensive options, and I am pleased to get our first piece of business done so early in the summer.

“He is in the peak years of his career and I am sure he will integrate well into the squad.

“He also has valuable experience, having played in the Bundesliga, the Europa League and at international level.”

Leon Balogun made his Bundesliga debut on April 19, 2009, for Hannover 96.

 

The player was named in Nigeria’s provisional 30-man squad for the FIFA World Cup in Russia.
