Early career[edit]

On 30 April 2010, Dunk signed a two-year professional contract with Brighton & Hove Albion following impressive performances captaining the club's youth team.[4] The following day, Dunk made his first professional appearance starting in the 0–0 draw at Milton Keynes Dons.[5]

On 31 January 2011, Dunk signed a one-year extension on his contract keeping him at the club until the summer of 2013.[6] Dunk made eight appearances in the 2010–11 season[7] as Brighton gained promotion to the Championship as League One champions.[8]

With fellow defenders Tommy Elphick and Adam El-Abd sidelined by injury, Dunk started the 2011–12 season alongside captain Gordon Greer, playing in Brighton's first ever match at Falmer Stadium versus Doncaster Rovers.[citation needed]

On 4 October 2013, Dunk joined League One club Bristol City on a one-month loan deal, to gain some first-team football.[9]

On 25 July 2014, Dunk signed a new four-year contract with Brighton & Hove Albion which kept him at the club until the end of the 2017–18 season.[10]

Dunk received a call-up to the England under-21 squad in November 2011, ahead of their European Championship qualifiers against Iceland and Belgium.[11] However, he did not feature in either of the matches.
