Ghanaian winger Benicio Baker-Boaitey has sealed a permanent transfer move to English Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion.

He joined the English side from Portuguese side FC Porto after initially joining the seagulls on loan in the January transfer window.

The former West Ham academy product has signed for Brighton until June 2023 and will play for the U-23 squad.

Under-23s boss Andrew Crofts said, "Since he came on loan in January, Benicio has shown his ability and worked hard in both training and matches to earn the move.

"We are really looking forward to working with him on his ongoing development this coming season."

The Ghanaian youngster was born in London to Ghanaian parents and came through the ranks with West Ham, before leaving for Porto at the beginning of the 2020/21 season.
