Brighton sign Deniz Undav – Europe’s most PROLIFIC striker

BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION have announced the signing of striker Deniz Undav from Belgian outfit Union SG for a reported £6million.

The 25-year-old German will stay on loan with Belgian first division table-toppers Union SG for the rest of the season, music to the ears of the club.

Undaz is the ONLY player in Europe’s top 10 leagues so far this season to register 30 or more goal contributions, with a staggering 31 in total.

The German born marksman has already netted a whopping 18 goals, and provided 13 assists in the 2021/22 campaign.

Brighton have immediately re-invested around half of the £13m earned through the sale of Dan Burn to Newcastle.

Speaking on the acquisition, Seagulls technical director Dan Ashworth said: “Deniz is an exciting player who will add variation to our attacking options for next season.”

Meanwhile Brighton boss Potter added: “We are really looking forward to his arrival and working with him from next summer, as we prepare for the 2022/23 season.”

Undav’s goals last season fired Union SG into the top tier, and the striker has picked up where he left off by helping the club straight to the top of their new division.


The closest to his 31 goal contributions this campaign is Mohamed Salah with 25, followed by Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema who are both tied on 24.

In total Undav has bagged 105 goals and provided 56 assists in 215 senior appearances, and could prove to be a shrewd addition.

He will stay with Union SG until the end of the season, with the Belgian club co-owned by Tony Bloom – Brighton’s chairman since 2009.

Bloom bought into the Brussels-based outfit three seasons ago, but Undav is the first player to switch Belgium for Brighton.

Players have gone the other way in the past though.

Kaoru Mitoma and Kacper Kozlowski are currently enjoying loan spells with Union SG.
