Mahmoud Dahoud

Brighton & Hove Albion, the club has confirmed the signing of Mahmoud Dahoud from Borussia Dortmund. The 27-year-old German international will join the Seagulls on a free transfer when his current contract with Dortmund expires at the end of June.

Dahoud, who has made 141 appearances for Dortmund and helped the club win the Super Cup in 2019 and the German Cup in 2021, has agreed to a four-year deal with Brighton, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2027. The midfielder’s game time at Dortmund was limited last season due to a shoulder surgery, but he is expected to play a key role at Brighton under head coach Roberto De Zerbi.

De Zerbi expressed his excitement about the signing, stating, “I’m excited to have Mahmoud in my team. I wanted him when I was at Sassuolo and I’m sure he is going to be a top player for us.” Dahoud’s arrival follows the departures of Alexis Mac Allister to Liverpool and Moises Caicedo’s potential move to Chelsea.

Brighton’s technical director, David Weir, also spoke highly of Dahoud, saying, “We’re delighted to bring Mahmoud to the club, his quality and ability will really add to the options available to Roberto. He’s a quality player, he’s got lots of experience playing at a high level in Germany with great experience in Europe too.”

The signing of Dahoud is a clear statement of intent from Brighton, who are looking to build on their impressive performances in the Premier League last season. With pre-season starting next month, fans will be eager to see Dahoud in action during the Summer Series in the United States in July.
