After Roberto De Zerbi's move from the post of Brighton head coach, the Seagulls did not grieve for long and have already found a replacement for the Italian, with whom they have settled all the nuances.

As Ben Jacobs reports, the eleventh Premier League club of last season has already settled all the issues with German specialist Fabian Hürzeler. Both he and his club St Pauli have already agreed to the switch.

The issue of compensation to the German team has also already been settled, but what it will be, the insider did not say. It is reported that Brighton are set to finalise the deal as early as this week.

It is worth recalling that the 31-year-old specialist has been in charge of German St Pauli, which last season won the Second Bundesliga, since December 2022. If Hürzeler does become Brighton's head coach, he will be the youngest coach to ever lead a Premier League club.

He will not break the absolute record of Ryan Mason, who took charge of Tottenham at the age of 29 years and 10 months, but it should be taken into account that Mason was the interim coach of Spurs, but he will break the record as a head coach by almost a year.

The current record has been held for 21 years by Chris Coleman, who took charge of Fulham in February 2003 at the age of 32 years, 7 months and 22 days.
