Brighton and Hove Albion head coach Graham Potter has expressed delight on the contract extension of Ghanaian defender Tariq Lamptey.

Lamptey recently signed an extension which will last until 2025, momentary ending his links with Bayern Munich.

In an interview with the English media, Potter couldn't hide his joy at the news.

“It means his short, medium and long-term future is with us and he can just focus on the most important thing for him, which is first to get fit and then to play more games in the Premier League,” Potter said of the contract extension.

“If you speak to Tariq, I think he will say he has every area of his game he can improve. And that’s not to say he’s not doing really, really well.

“I think he has got that mentality that he wants to improve, he wants to get better. He has got that ambition.

“Now it’s just a case of settling down and getting on with the really important stuff, which is playing football, affecting the games and helping us get points.”
