Brighton are expected to complete the signing of striker Deniz Undav from Belgian club Union Saint-Gilloise on transfer Deadline Day.
Sky Sports News exclusively reported on Friday that the 25-year-old will remain on loan in Belgium for the remainder of the current season before joining up with Brighton in the summer.
Union Saint-Gilloise are leading the Belgian league with the club hoping Undav’s goals can keep them top of the table and fire them to the league title.
Undav has 18 goals in just 24 appearances in the league this season. He joined Union SG from German lower league side Meppen in 2020.
Brighton chairman Tony Bloom is co-owner of the Belgian club.
Brighton have two players currently on loan at Union Saint-Gilloise – 18-year-old Poland international Kacper Koslowski, who was signed early in the January window, and Japan international Kaoru Mitoma.
Brighton also remain on course to complete the signing of teenage Paraguay international Julio Enciso before the transfer window shuts.
