The Malian made 124 Albion appearances in all competitions, scoring six goals and registering six assists.

Which players have signed for Brighton during the transfer window?
Brighton have had a quiet summer transfer window so far.
Paraguayan wonderkid, and long-term transfer target, Julio Enciso signed a four-year deal at the Amex last month.
The 18-year-old striker, who made his international debut at 17 and has five Paraguay caps, was pursued by the Seagulls in January.
Albion looked set to complete a £6m deal for the teenager but negotiations ground to a halt as Brighton and Enciso’s club, Club Libertad, could not agree personal terms.
The Seagulls have also snapped up Ivorian striker Simon Adingra.
The 20-year-old, who bagged ten goals and four assists for Danish outfit FC Nordsjaelland last season, will spend the 2022-23 campaign on loan at Albion’s Belgian sister club Royale Union Saint-Gilloise.
Here is the full list of Brighton player arrivals, including the transfer fee that the club has spent:
- Julio Enciso – Club Libertad Asunción (PARAGUAY) – £10.44 million
- Simon Adingra – FC Nordsjaelland (DENMARK) – £7.2 million
What is Brighton’s net spend in the transfer window so far?

As of Friday, July 15, Albion have accumulated £26.28 million in player sales, according to transfermarkt.co.uk.
Whilst the Seagulls have spent a total of £17.64 million on new recruits.
