Transfers for Tuesday, July 17, 2018

Jason Steele signed for Brighton from Sunderland in late June but it appears he may have to wait for a lesser competition to make his first competitive appearance for the club.

First-choice goalkeeper Mat Ryan was a standout performer in Brighton's first season in the Premier League under Chris Hughton. He will hold onto his starting berth for the coming season, with 27 year-old Steele ready to deputise if necessary. Steele, a former England U-21 international, played 18 times for Sunderland last season as they suffered their second consecutive relegation to League One. He has signed a three-year deal at the AMEX.

Early in July, Brighton announced the signing of Bernardo from RB Leipzig on a four-year deal which set the club back a reported £9m.

The Brazilian is a utility player, who can play on both the left and right side of the defence. Last season at Leipzig he was predominantly used on the left, with 15 of his 18 league outings coming on that side. He usually started for them though a string of appearances would be interrupted by a one game drop to the bench. In 27 total appearances last term, Bernardo notched up just a single goal and assist, suggesting that fantasy managers should not be rushing to include him in their gameweek one sides.

Jannik Vestergaard returned home from World Cup duty with Denmark having failed to make an appearance and promptly signed for Southampton a few days ago.

The 6ft 6in centre-back has signed a four-year deal at St. Mary's, becoming their record transfer in the process at approximately £18 million ($23.6m). The 24 year-old arrives from Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach, for whom he made 79 appearances in two seasons including run-outs in the Champions League and Europa League. Given his height, it's not a shock that Vestergaard is renowned for his aerial ability - he won 90 aerial duels in the German top flight last term, a 60% success rate. 90 is the 13th best tally of all players in that division. The Dane also topped the league for blocked shots (35) and was 7th for clearances (146). His 3 defensive errors placed him 19th for that unfortunate tally but just one led to a breakthrough for the opposition.
