Brighton Under-23s goalkeeper Hugo Keto has joined Irish Premier Division side Waterford on loan until the end of June.

Brighton Under-23s goalkeeper Hugo Keto has joined Irish Premier Division side Waterford on loan until the end of June.

The 21-year-old, who joined the Seagulls from Arsenal last summer, has kept four clean sheets in 13 appearances for the development side this season.

The move is permitted as the transfer deadline in Ireland is not until February 22.

Under-23s coach Simon Rusk said: ‘Hugo has proved a great addition to the squad since arriving at the beginning of the season, stepping straight into the side and contributing towards our positive start to life in the top division.

‘But this move will provide Hugo with his first taste of senior football, and it comes at an important stage of his career in terms of development.

‘With Robert Sanchez returning from Forest Green, it opens the door for Hugo to get that experience and we wish him the best of luck during his time in Ireland.’
