Balogun who had struggled for regular playing time at Brighton following his summer arrival from German side, FSV Mainz has featured in the club’s last four games as a result of Shane Duffy’s suspension.

The 30-year-old will get another chance to stake claim for a regular berth in the team against Arsenal with Dunk suspended for the game.

He has made seven Premier League appearances for Brighton this season, scoring once.
