June 21 (Reuters) - Brighton and Hove Albion forward Sam Baldock has signed a new three-year deal that will keep him at the Premier League club until the end of the 2019-20 season, the club announced on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old has made more than 80 appearances for Brighton since joining in 2014. He scored 12 goals in all competitions last season as the team gained promotion to the top tier from the Championship.
“As soon as the club made noises that they wanted to extend my contract it was always in my head that this is where I want to be,” Baldock told the club’s website. (www.brightonandhovealbion.com)
“Last season was probably the pinnacle of my career, and I hope now we can establish ourselves in the Premier League and continue to improve together.”
