For one so young, he immediately displayed a presence and calmness in men’s football that really impressed. This is now a big opportunity for Warren here at Brighton; he has a platform to develop his game and progress and try and become a top, top young central defender. His first target is to force his way in to Brighton’s U23 side but we’ve every confidence in him.”

Conliffe suggested more may to be follow; “we have some excellent young prospects on our books in Ireland and Warren ought not to be the last one to transfer during this window. It is an exciting time for young Irish footballers, for sure.”
We wish Brighton and Warren all the best with this move.
