Albion boss Chris Hughton said: “I am delighted for both Lewis and Shane. They have been terrific players for the club; helping us win promotion and establish ourselves in the Premier League last season.


“They have formed a very good central defensive partnership, and have played a really important role in what we’ve achieved.



“Both are vital members of the squad, and it’s very pleasing that they’ve committed their long-term futures to the club.”

Dunk said: “I’m very pleased. I’ve been here since I was a little boy from the age of ten years old, so to commit to another five years to this fantastic club is an amazing feeling.

“It was such an easy decision; I’m here in my hometown playing football in the Premier League with these amazing fans behind us.
