Having arrived from Danish side FC Nordsjaelland last weekend, Adingra said it was a ‘dream come to true’ to join the Seagulls.

The 20-year-old joins a list of exciting purchases made by Brighton since they joined the Premier League, keeping very much with the club’s focus on youth.

“Since I was just a little kid, I have always dreamed of playing in the Premier League”, Adingra said.

“It is the best league in the world and this is a dream come true.”

It seems quite fitting that the Ivorian came through the Right To Dream academy in Ghana, therefore, which has produced several players who now compete in European leagues.

Were he to make a league start during his time at the Seagulls, Adingra would become the academy’s first graduate to make a Premier League debut.

“I have worked really hard to get here so I’m feeling happy and also proud of myself”, said the winger.

“After talking to Brighton, I knew this was the club for me. It’s exciting. The plan the club has for me is good, and I know they use a lot of young players and play good attacking football which suits me.

“That’s what I love and want to be a part of.”

The plan for Adingra is understood to include a loan, possibly to Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, this season.
