Brighton & Hove Albion

On 31 January 2020, Lamptey signed for Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion on a three-and-a-half-year contract. He made an impressive debut for Brighton in his first Premier League start, a 0–0 away draw against Leicester City on 23 June – Brighton’s second match back from the Premier League’s temporary break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lamptey started in Brighton’s opening match of the 2020–21 season against his former club Chelsea in which he set up Leandro Trossard’s goal in a 3–1 home defeat. He scored his first goal on 1 November in a 2–1 Premier League defeat away to Tottenham Hotspur. Lamptey was sent off for the first time in his career on 21 November after receiving two yellow cards in the 2–1 away victory against Aston Villa. On 17 January 2021, Lamptey signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract with Brighton. On 12 March, after being sidelined since picking up a hamstring injury in a 0–0 away draw against Fulham on 16 December 2020, it was announced that Lamptey would miss the remainder of the season due to the injury.

2021–present: Return from injury

Lamptey made his return to a matchday squad for the first time in nine months on 19 September 2021, remaining as an unused substitute in Brighton’s 2–1 home win over Leicester. Three days later, he made his first competitive appearance since December 2020, starting and playing the first half of the 2–0 victory at home to Swansea City in the EFL Cup third round. Lamptey made his first league appearance in 10 months on 16 October 2021, when he came on as a 59th-minute substitute in a 0–0 draw away to Norwich City. He made his first Premier League start since returning from injury in a 1–1 home draw against Newcastle United on 6 November, playing 75 minutes. On 7 May, he came on as a 76th-minute substitute in Brighton’s biggest top-flight victory, a 4–0 home win over Manchester United.

Lamptey scored his second goal for Brighton with the team’s third in a 3–1 victory away to Arsenal on 9 November in the EFL Cup third round. He did not start a Premier League match in the 2022–23 season until his 13th appearance, when he played the whole match in a 4–2 home loss to Arsenal on 31 December. On 4 March 2023, Lamptey limped off after 15 minutes off the 4–0 home win over West Ham, in what would be his last action of the season due to the knee injury, as Brighton went on to seal a spot in the 2023–24 UEFA Europa League.

International career

Lamptey was born in England to Ghanaian parents. He has been a youth international for England, having represented the Young Lions from under-18 to under-21 level.[citation needed]

In July 2020, he was contacted by the Ghana Football Association about potentially switching allegiances to represent Ghana. However, on 8 September, Lamptey made his England under-21 debut, starting in a 2–1 away victory over Austria in a 2021 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifier. After 18 months out of the under-21 team due to injury, he then made his return to the side in March 2022, taking part in the 2023 European Under-21 Championship qualification matches against Andorra and Albania.

In May 2022, it was announced that Lamptey was considering switching allegiances to Ghana, with England under-21 manager Lee Carsley saying that Lamptey had “asked to be left out of the squad for a bit of head space.” After months of further speculation, in July the president of the Ghana FA, Kurt Okraku, announced that Lamptey was one of the few players who were officially made eligible to represent Ghana. Lamptey made his debut on 23 September, coming on as a 72nd-minute substitute, replacing Denis Odoi in a 3–0 friendly loss against Brazil at the Stade Océane in Le Havre.

On 14 November, Lamptey was named in Ghana’s 26-man squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
