Irish midfielder Jayson Molumby has signed a new deal with Brighton and Hove Albion which will keep him at the club until 2023.
The 20-year-old Molumby, who joined Brighton in 2016, is currently on loan at Millwall where he has excelled so far this season.
The under-21 Irish captain has excelled in midfield, making 32 appearances in all competitions this season.
Dan Ashworth, Brighton's Technical Director, said that Molumby had grown as a player since moving to Millwall.
The experiences Jayson has had in the tough environment of the Championship this season have really helped his overall game and we’re delighted that he is committing himself to the club so he can continue his development when he comes back to us at the end of the season.
We have watched him regularly this season and I know how pleased everyone at Millwall has been with his performances and his attitude.
The new contract is a reward for his professionalism and hard work and I’m sure he will be looking to make a big impact when he comes back to the club.
Molumby has played a starring role for Stephen Kenny's under-21s as they bid to qualify for the European Championships in 2021.
