Last Updated: 18/12/18 10:21am

Brighton defender Leon Balogun has become the seventh Premier League player to join the Common Goal movement.

The Nigeria international joins Juan Mata, Kasper Schmeichel and Seagulls team-mate Bruno in pledging one per cent of his salary to the cause, which funds football-based social organisations around the world.

Balogun, 30, said: “As football players, we enjoy a high place in society and we have a very important role to play because of this.

“Joining Common Goal gives me the opportunity to actively help and support people in their communities and open up doors to a better life.”

Balogun is the 68th footballer to commit to Common Goal, which has raised more than £750,000 in under 18 months.
