Former Arsenal and Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck has joined Brighton on a one-year deal.
The 29-year old was a free agent after terminating his contract with Watford last month. It means that he could be in line to make his debut for his new club against West Bromwich Albion at the Amex Stadium on Monday night.
Brighton manager Graham Potter said “We are delighted to have Danny joining us, He will complement our existing striking options.”
Welbeck began his career with the United academy and played 142 times for them, scoring 29 goals until moving to Arsenal in 2014.
His time at the Emirates was blighted by injury, and his contract was allowed to run down, joining Watford as a free agent last summer. However, again injury blighted his progress at Vicarage Road, and he was unable to prevent the club suffering relegation at the end of the season and dropping down to the Championship.
He has won 42 caps for England, scoring 18 times for his country.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
