Seagulls star to develop in Germany

19th July 2019, 15:27 by Alex Jack

Brighton defender Leo Ostigard has joined 2. Bundesliga outfit FC St Pauli on a season-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old, who made two Premier League appearances last season for the Seagulls, will spend the 2019/20 season with the Hamburg-based club, who play in the second division in Germany.

"This is an excellent loan move for Leo and one which comes at the right time for him," said Brighton Under-23 coach Simon Rusk.

"I'm sure he'll learn valuable lessons from a tough season in the Bundesliga 2.

"Leo works extremely hard on the training pitch and his commitment to improve is clear to see.

"We will closely monitor his progress in Germany and we are looking forward to seeing how he progresses as he takes on an exciting new challenge."
