Brighton have announced they've agreed a deal for the summer to sign winger Ibrahim Osman from Danish club FC Nordsjaelland for a fee of around £16m.

The 19-year-old will join the club when the transfer window opens later this year, on a contract that runs until June 2029.

"We're looking forward to the opportunity of working with Ibrahim," Brighton technical director David Weir told the club's website.

"He's a young and exciting prospect, but for now it's important that we give him the space to focus fully on Nordsjaelland, where he is enjoying a good season.

"Once the current season is over and he's had the opportunity to rest during the summer, we will bring him into our environment where he will get the time and support he needs to settle here in England."

Osman has four goals and five assists for his club from 29 appearances this season.
