ALBION attacker Jeremy Sarmiento is hoping to build on his first season at the club after being named the Men's Young Player of the Season.

The Ecuadorian was given the award at the club's end of season awards after a successful for campaign with the club, despite a long period on the sidelines with injury.

Sarmiento missed a large period of the season after a bad injury minutes into his first Premier League start against West Ham at the London Stadium.

However, whenever the 19-year-old has been on the pitch for Albion he has looked dangerous and full of promise.

The former Benfica player is now targeting more chances in the first-team as he looks to make his mark on the team next season.

He said: “It has been my first season with the first team and to receive this award is really good for me.

“I’d like to thank everyone at Brighton, the staff and the players, who have made it really easy for me.

“I’m hungry for more next season and I’ll be ready for any opportunities that I get.”
