A recently deceased Albion star has said goodbye to a local company after joining Tottenham Hotspur.
Yves Bissouma completed his move to the other Premier League team last month for an undisclosed fee that could rise to over £30million.
The 25-year-old took to social media to share a series of pictures of him saying goodbye at the Regency Restaurant in Kings Road, Brighton.
In a post on Instagram, he said: “Before my mum came to take me to eat it was here at this restaurant where I ate every day and this guy helped me a lot with the food.
“I came to thank you with a shirt for everything.”
In the pictures, Bissouma can be seen signing an Albion shirt and posing for photos with staff.
Following Bissouma’s departure, Albion head coach Graham Potter said: “The transfer is very good for the club and the player.
“Yves has shown his undoubted skills and has been an important player for us during his time with us.
“Now he has a new challenge at Tottenham, including the opportunity to play Champions League football, and everyone at the club wish him well.”
After the transfer was confirmed, Bissouma revealed his ambitions with his new team.
“It’s my dream to play the Champions League,” he said.
“I remember when I was younger I watched the Champions League every day. I can’t believe (I will) play in the Champions League with Spurs.
“I’m so happy, I just want to say thank you to my mum, dad and my agent here, thanks to everyone, thanks to Spurs too.”
