Transfers DONE DEAL: Mats Wieffer joins Brighton & Hove Albion from Feyenoord

Brighton & Hove Albion have confirmed the signing of Netherlands international Mats Wieffer from Feyenoord on a contract until 2029.

The 24-year-old defensive midfielder made his professional debut for FC Twente in 2018 and made more than 70 appearances in two seasons with Excelsior before joining Feyenoord in 2022. In two seasons with Feyenoord, Mats contributed nine goals and 11 assists in 79 games.

In March 2023 he made his Netherlands debut in a EURO 2024 qualifier against Gibraltar and scored his first international goal last November when the Dutch beat Gibraltar 6-0 in the return fixture.

Technical director David Weir said: “We’re delighted to welcome Mats to the club, a player whose qualities we have admired for a long time.

“He has a lot of experience in the Champions League as well as the Eredivisie and has developed into one of the best deep-lying midfielders in Europe.

“We obviously have Dutch players here already in Bart Verbruggen, Jan Paul van Hecke and Joel Veltman and I’m sure they will help Mats settle into the club. We’re looking forward to helping Mat’s career develop with Brighton.”
