BRIGHTON are watching Ghana teen Mathew Cudjoe at Dundee United.
Midfielder Cudjoe, 18, has made just two Premiership appearances for the Tannadice side but is already on the Seagulls’ radar.Midfielder Cudjoe could be set for an immediate loan move to Brighton’s partner club in Belgium if he does sign[/caption]
Brighton could sign Cudjoe and send him straight to partner club Royale Union Saint-Gilloise in Belgium to get more game time — and improve his chances of qualifying for a work permit to play in England.
Before arriving in Scotland, Cudjoe developed his game in his native Ghana.
He came through at the Young Apostles from 2018 and enjoyed two loan stints away at Asante Kotoko and Legon Cities.
The youngster then joined Dundee United in 2021 but failed to make real headway into then-manager Tam Courts’ side.

Brighton have already had a fairly busy transfer window this summer as they look to bulk up the squad with young talent.
In June Graham Potter’s side secured the exciting 18-year-old Julio Enciso on a four-year deal.
They forked out £9.5m on the Paraguayan forward from Libertad Asuncion.
He had scored 11 goals and provided three assists in 14 league appearances for the Paraguyan club, and left them top of the table.
