Newly-promoted Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion have signed striker Sam Baldock to a fresh three-year deal.
The 28-year-old scored 12 goals and provided four assists for the Seagulls last season, prompting the club to keep him around for the long term.
A statement on their official website reads: "
“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. 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.”
Manager Chris Hughton weighed in as well, describing Baldock as a key member of his squad and expressing delight at the development.
“We are delighted that Sam has agreed a new deal with us. He has been a key member of the squad since he arrived at the club and this new contract is recognition of his contribution over the last couple of seasons.
“He’s also a great professional and a good character in the dressing room, so we are pleased he will be with us for the next few seasons."
