Brighton boss Chris Hughton told the official club website, “We are really pleased to have brought in another offensive option,”

“Elvis is a different type of striker, and also a player who has also played in wide areas.At 22 years of age, he is of a great age for further development, and he comes to us with a very good pedigree having come through the Feyenoord system,”

 

Manu broke into the Feyenoord first team last season after impressing in a loan spell with Cambuur the year before. Playing mostly on the left wing, Manu impressed with 12 goals in 32 appearances and kept Jean Paul Boetius out of the line-up.
