Albion defender Gaetan Bong has been rewarded for his solid form in the Premier League with a contract extension.

The former Cameroon international left-back's deal was due to expire in the summer but he will now be with the Seagulls until 2019.

Manager Chris Hughton said: "I am delighted for Gaetan. He is a key member of the squad and he has worked really hard to earn this new contract with the club.

"He has proved himself to be a consistent performer for us in the Premier League so far this season and acquitted himself really well stepping up from the Championship."
