Ezequiel Schelotto and Beram Kayal sign deals to finish season at Brighton

Brighton duo Ezequiel Schelotto and Beram Kayal have signed contract extensions through to the end of the season.

The pair’s original deals expired at the end of this month, but they have now agreed to stay until the campaign concludes.

The club’s technical director Dan Ashworth said: “We have a very busy period coming up with seven games between now and July 26 so it’s important we have as many options as possible during this period.

Israeli Kayal has not played for Brighton this term, having moved to the club from Celtic in 2015.
