David Stockdale joined Brighton & Hove Albion from Fulham in July 2014 and signed a three-year deal at the club.

The 28-year-old began his career with York City and Darlington before moving to Fulham in 2008 in a deal reported to be worth £600,000.
It was in West London where Stockdale played alongside current goalkeeping coach Antti Niemi during the Finn’s two years at the club.

Stockdale has also had various loan spells, including Leicester City, Ipswich Town and Hull City – and he helped the Tigers secure promotion to the Premier League in 2012/13.
He established himself as first-choice keeper at Craven Cottage, and was the standout performer in a Fulham side which was relegated – making more than 50 senior appearances for the London club.

Stockdale quickly established himself as Albion's number one and made 46 appearances in his first season at the Amex, making numerous vital stops during the season, including a vital penalty save during the 4-3 win over Birmingham City.
