The 25-year-old has been in outstanding form this season, scoring 11 goals and providing seven assists, as Brighton sit second in the Championship.

He tweeted this evening: "Really happy to have sign a new contract with this great club and a lovely group of players."

Albion manager Chris Hughton said: "Anthony has been an integral member of the squad since his arrival in January last year, and I am delighted that we have been able to secure his immediate future to the club.

“This new contract recognises the hard work and relentless effort he has given to the team, and I am looking forward to working with him over the coming years.”

Knockaert arrived at the club from Standard Liege in January, 2016, and made his debut in a 2-0 defeat to Rotherham United the same month.
