BRIGHTON are watching Ghana teen Mathew Cudjoe at Dundee United.
Midfielder Cudjoe, 18, has made just two Premiership appearances for the Tannadice side but is already on the Seagulls’ radar.
Brighton could sign Cudjoe and send him straight to partner club Royale Union Saint-Gilloise in Belgium to get more game time — and improve his chances of qualifying for a work permit to play in England.
Before arriving in Scotland, Cudjoe developed his game in his native Ghana.
He came through at the Young Apostles from 2018 and enjoyed two loan stints away at Asante Kotoko and Legon Cities.
The youngster then joined Dundee United in 2021 but failed to make real headway into then-manager Tam Courts' side.

In June Graham Potter's side secured the exciting 18-year-old Julio Enciso on a four-year deal.
They forked out £9.5m on the Paraguayan forward from Libertad Asuncion.
He had scored 11 goals and provided three assists in 14 league appearances for the Paraguyan club, and left them top of the table.

Brighton will also be joined by the pair of striker Deniz Undav and Polish midfielder Kacper Kozlowski after they signed in January but left on loan for the remainder of the season.
The club's summer business also received a further boost as Pascal Gross put pen to paper on a new two-year deal.
