Defender Adam Webster has committed his future to Brighton by signing a new five-year deal.
The 26-year-old joined the Premier League club two years ago from Bristol City in a £20m deal, making 60 league appearances since his move to the Amex. The new contract will see him remain with the club until the summer of 2026.
Webster, who can play across Potter’s preferred back three formation, has made 60 appearances in the Premier League, scoring on four occasions.
“Adam has been a really important figure for us on and off the pitch, so I am delighted to see him commit to the project we have here,” Potter said.
“Adam was one of the first players to sign after I joined the club two years ago and I am delighted with his development in that time. He has captained the team on a few occasions which is a real testament to his qualities.
“We’re looking forward now to seeing him continue his fantastic form from last season into the new campaign.”
Brighton were keen to tie him down to a new contract, following the £50m departure of Ben White to Arsenal.
Brighton head coach Graham Potter believes the club have got enough options to replace Ben White and thinks the move is good for both parties
Potter even hinted after Saturday’s 3-1 friendly win at Luton that he would find solutions within his squad despite the departure of White.
He told Sky Sports News: “We have got enough competition in that area, we have got enough good players, we can flexible with how we set up.
