Daily Mail Online

Brighton goalkeeper Kjell Scherpen has moved to Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem on a season-long loan.

The 22-year-old joined Albion from Ajax last summer and made his debut in last season’s FA Cup third-round win at West Brom

He spent the remainder of the campaign on loan at Belgian side Oostende and was called up to the Holland squad June following an injury to Tim Krul.

Seagulls goalkeeping coach Ben Roberts told the club website: ‘This is a great opportunity for Kjell to continue his development and play regularly.

‘He was called up to the Dutch senior squad this summer and this means he has the chance of regular game time ahead of this year’s World Cup.

‘We wish Kjell well for the season ahead, and working with Gordon Greer and the loans department we will monitor his progress during the season.’
