Vancouver Whitecaps left back Sam Adekugbe is currently training with Brighton & Hove Albion F.C. of the Football League Championship, according to the Whitecaps.

The Whitecaps news release says Adekugbe will be with the club until December 20th.

It will be good for Adekugbe to continue to train and hopefully get worthwhile minutes, as the 20 year old defender had an injury filled, and ultimately limited 2015 campaign and could use some more playing time. He started 7 of just 9 regular season matches for the Whitecaps, but made an impression with an MLS Team of the Week selection in week 2.

According to the Whitecaps, this is the third international off-season training stint of Adekugbe's young career, as he spent time with both Liverpool FC and with Rangers FC last off-season.
