Brighton secure signing of Danny Welbeck on free transfer following striker’s departure from Watford
Brighton have signed Danny Welbeck on a free transfer, with the forward putting pen to paper on a one-year deal.
Former Manchester United and Arsenal striker Welbeck was a free agent following his departure from Watford, where his contract was terminated by mutual consent.
Brighton manager Graham Potter told the club’s official website: ‘We are delighted to have Danny joining us. 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.’
Welbeck, who has 42 England caps, made 20 appearances for Watford last season and scored three goals.
