Brighton sign England international Danny Welbeck

Brighton have completed the signing of England forward Danny Welbeck on a one-year deal.

Welbeck, 29, was a free agent after leaving Watford following their relegation to the Championship.

The former Manchester United and Arsenal man will remain in the Premier League for Graham Potter’s Seagulls.

Manchester-born Welbeck has scored 72 goals during a career that has often been interrupted by injuries.

A 42-time England international, Welbeck scored 16 goals for his country and was in the squad for the 2014 and 2018 World Cups.

Brighton boss Potter welcomed the arrival of Welbeck to the Amex Stadium.

“We are delighted to have Danny joining us,” he said. “He will complement our existing striking options.

“He’s got an undoubted pedigree, and he is quick and technically very good. He will add to our attacking threat and we are thrilled to add another player of his experience and quality.”

Brighton have made a poor start to their league campaign, winning one and losing three matches.

They are in 16th position going into their game against Crystal Palace this afternoon.
