30-year-old coach announcement at Brighton expected imminently – Fee agreed, St. Pauli secure ‘windfall’

Fabian Hürzeler will be named the new Brighton & Hove Albion manager today following a breakthrough in talks with St. Pauli.
According to reports, the 31-year-old will become the Premier League’s youngest coach ever, with an announcement due on Saturday.
Hürzeler has signed a contract with Brighton until 2027, and according to Sky, the German club will receive a ‘windfall’ as compensation for him.

According to their understanding, Brighton will pay a cost of €6-7 million for Hürzeler, with the final fee determined by performance-related bonuses agreed upon in the transaction.

Either way, an agreement now appears to have been struck after more than a week of tense negotiations between the two sides and a disagreement regarding his value. St. Pauli stuck to their guns on that front and have seemingly managed to make Brighton bend to them, getting a high price for their manager, who is expected to be announced as the new Seagulls boss at some point on Saturday.
