According to Fabrizio Romano, Brighton & Hove Albion have reached a full deal with James Milner on a free transfer when his contract with Liverpool expires at the end of the season. The veteran midfielder will sign a contract to spend next season with the Seagulls.
Brighton are already capitalizing on this contracting situation at Liverpool, signing Adam Lallan in the same way in 2020. This aspect, Milner’s vast experience, will likely go a long way in helping guide the next group of young prospects.
Milner remains one of only two current Liverpool players to join Liverpool before the appointment of Jurgen Klopp from Manchester City in 2015. Since then, the 37-year-old has made a total of 328 appearances for the club. , scoring 26 goals and giving 46 assists. An extremely versatile player, Milner has played almost every outfield position in his illustrious career and Klopp is sure to miss the reliability his vice-captain has provided for so long.
Brighton is going to sign James Milner, that’s it – the final offer and all points accepted. The deal will run until June 2024. #BHAFC
