The 19-year-old has emerged as a first-team regular under Oscar Garcia this season and he has been attracting glances from a number of Premier League clubs.

But Brighton have now tied March down to a new four-year deal at the AMEX Stadium.

Garcia was delighted to have finalised the deal and said: "Solly has made great progress this season and deserves this new contract. He has done very well in the matches he has played and has been a pleasure to work with.

"It's hard for any young player to break through into the first team but it is even harder to stay there. That is the next challenge for Solly.

"He has the capability and, if he continues to work hard, I am confident he will achieve that."

March joined Brighton from non-league Lewes in 2011, when he turned down the likes of Arsenal and Newcastle to sign for the Seagulls.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
