Even the most self-assured Premier League player would think twice before staking their home on a winning season, but that’s exactlywhat one UK football fan has done.

Martin Senior has vowed to give a full refund to whoever buys his £1.4m house in Hove, East Sussex if his favourite football club makes it to the Premier League.

The four-bedroom home has an asking price of £1.4m but comes with a rather unusual clause – Senior will pay back every penny to the buyer if Brighton and Albion FC get promoted.

The odds on the Championship team making it to the Premier League are currently 10-1. The team is in ninth position with 49 points and is two points off a play-off place with 15 games to play.

Senior, a sculpter, designed and built the home himself. It includes a large open-plan living room and kitchen with doors opening out onto a tropical garden. As well as a guest suite and two further bedrooms, the master bedroom suite comes complete with a roof terrace and sea views.

Anyone – not just football fanatics – can buy the house, but Senior has urged a fellow Seagulls fan to step forward.

“It would be the perfect end to the season for an Albion fan – a free house and their team in the Premier League,” Senior says.
