Solly March ‘is set to sign a new Brighton contract’, as Roberto De Zerbi looks to reward the long-serving midfielder’s blistering run of form of seven goals in his last 12 appearances
- Solly March is reportedly going to sign a new contract extension with Brighton
- The wing-back has scored seven goals in 12 games in a blistering run of form
- March signed for the Seagulls in 2011, part of their rise to the Premier League
Solly March is to sign a new contract with Premier League side Brighton, a new report has suggested.
March, 28, has scored seven goals in his last 12 outings, including an early one against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night which proved to be the matchwinner.
Now it seems that the wing-back’s recent run of good form has made Roberto De Zerbi’s Brighton act quickly to improve his deal and keep him tied to the Seagulls for the foreseeable future – having already spent 12 years with the club.
The Athletic report that March’s contract, which was set to expire next summer, will now be extended.
March has made in excess of 250 appearances for Brighton since signing from non-league Lewes in 2011, and across the last 13 years, he has seen the Seagulls go from second-tier football to the verge of European qualification.
