Brighton hand new deal to star De Zerbi says is “not human”

Brighton have given Lewis Dunk a new contract for his excellent performances.

As revealed by football journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Brighton have offered Lewis Dunk a new three-year deal.

In a summer of turmoil and doubt over some key players at Brighton, fans of the club will be happy to see Dunk’s future settled.

Roberto De Zerbi will surely be glad that the centre-back is staying put. The Seagulls boss has been clear about Dunk’s importance in his vision, saying “he is a top player…He has to play 90 minutes every game for me. Dunk is not human,” as quoted by The Argus.

Dunk will probably be a regular at the back again for Brighton this season.

Dunk is the Brighton club captain. He has been with the seaside club for his whole career, having made his way into the first team from the academy in 2010 when the club were in League One.

A local lad, Dunk has made over 400 appearances for the Seagulls and earned his place in the club’s history.

Now 31-years-old, the one-time England international is now more vital to Brighton than ever. Dunk’s leadership skills, aerial strength, and quality on the ball make him the cornerstone of De Zerbi’s defence.

He was in great form last season, showing no signs of fading, which is why the club will be so pleased to have secured him for another three years.
