Albion landed the young defender for around £4m on a three year deal but how did fans react on social media?

@jstockbridge1

The Lamptey signing feels right. Out of a top academy, a modest, reported under £5m price. In constrast to a spell of signing players well in excess of £10 who struggled to deliver, or still are #bhafc

@JournoHaff

Can hardly contain my excitement at this one. £3m, 3-year deal for Tariq Lamptey.

Outstanding business. #bhafc

@Brightonfan

Tariq Lamptey and Mcallister both in tomorrow, but we are still crying out for a striker, still not convinced we will get one of those though. #bhafc

@Brightonfan

Welcome to the Albion, Tariq Lamptey. Another one for our bright future going forward. Now let’s hope we can get Mcallister over the line and maybe possibly a striker! #bhafc

@No1Adonis

Right that’s good now who’s next

@Ralphwjbrown

#bhafc tired of the deadline whines. Lamptey frees up Alzate, McAllister means we have a bounty of riches going forward and three strikers plus wingers, number tens agogo and centre halves who can score. Get behind the manager and the players and the team and the club.

Tariq Lamptey you will be missed be us Chelsea fans..It's disappointing that he didn't want to stay but also understandable when there's a generational baller in his preferred position (RJ). Wish this bright talent all the best

Tariq Lamptey was incredible against Arsenal, however the right back role will be Reece James’ for the long term future. His departure should not be treated as a negative what so ever.
