Brighton Strike £16m Deal With Nordsjaelland For Ghana Winger Ibrahim Osman

The Seagulls have agreed to part with £16m for the 19-year-old, who will sign a contract until the summer of 2029.

Osman emerged as a key target for West Ham United during the January transfer window but a deal never materialised.

Osman joined Nordsjaelland from the Right To Dream academy in Ghana in January last year and has made 29 appearances this season, scoring four goals and providing six assists.

Brighton Technical Director David Weir said: “We’re looking forward to the opportunity of working with Ibrahim.

“He’s a young and exciting prospect, but for now it’s important that we give him the space to focus fully on Nordsjaelland, where he is enjoying a good season.

“Once the current season is over and he’s had the opportunity to rest during the summer, we will bring him into our environment where he will get the time and support he needs to settle here in England.”

Osman is yet to be capped by the Ghana national team.
