Brighton winger Soufyan Ahannach joins Sparta Rotterdam on loan
Last Updated: 19/01/18 9:52am
Brighton winger Soufyan Ahannach has signed a loan deal with Eredivisie side Sparta Rotterdam until the end of the season.
Ahannach arrived at the club from Dutch side Almere City in August 2017, and will now return to the Netherlands for the remainder of the campaign.
The 22-year-old, who has not played for the club in the Premier League, made two appearances in the Checkatrade Trophy against Oxford United and Stevenage.
Brighton boss Chris Hughton told the club's website: "Soufyan was brought in initially as a member of the development squad, and to be pushing to breakthrough into the first-team squad, but he has found those opportunities limited during the first half of the season.
"This loan move offers him the chance to go and play regular first-team football with Sparta Rotterdam in the top division in the Dutch League. It is a good move for all parties - the two clubs, but most importantly Soufyan, and this will help his ongoing development."
