Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez has signed a new deal with the club, tying him to the Amex until 2025.

The 23-year-old made his debut in a 2-1 defeat away at

Tottenham

in November and he has kept six clean sheets in his 14 games in the Premier League.

His performances have seen him replace

Mat Ryan

as the club's No 1 choice in goal.

"We're really pleased Robert has committed his long-term future to the club, after some impressive performances since his debut last year,"

Seagulls' head coach

Graham Potter

told the club's official website

.

"Robert has already shown what an exciting prospect he is, with a great attitude and mentality.

"He has adjusted quickly to the Premier League, and we believe he has all the attributes to develop into a top-class goalkeeper.

"Credit is also due to Ben Roberts and Casper Ankergren, the club's goalkeeping coaches, who, along with a number of staff in our academy, have helped Rob and guided him through his development.

"We are looking forward to working with Rob and helping him continue with his development."

Sanchez signed for Brighton from the Spanish side

Levante

in 2013 and played in Albion's age group teams, and had loan spells with

Forest Green Rovers

and

Rochdale

.
