Taylor Richards signs new Brighton deal

Taylor Richards has signed a new three-year deal with Brighton and Hove Albion.

The 20-year-old midfielder joined the Premier League side in 2019, making his professional debut later that year against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup.

He then spent the 2020/21 season on loan in League One with Doncaster Rovers, where he made 48 appearances and scored 11 goals.

Brighton head coach Graham Potter said: “Taylor has impressed during pre-season and he was deservedly part of the first-team squad at Burnley last weekend.

“He had a very productive loan spell at Doncaster last season, and this new contract is a reward for his hard work and progress he’s made since he arrived.”

Everybody at USM wishes Taylor the best of luck for the season ahead.
