Brighton & Hove Albion have signed David Stockdale from Fulham.

The 28-year old goalkeeper has penned a three-year deal with the Seagulls for an undisclosed fee after spending the past six seasons at Craven Cottage.

Leeds-born Stockdale, who made a total of 52 appearances for the west Londoners, is now expected to play a key role at the Amex Stadium.

"We are delighted to have completed David's signing from Fulham, and I am pleased to welcome him to the club," Seagulls boss Sami Hyypia told the club's official website.

"It is a transfer we have been working on for some time - and David is a goalkeeper with excellent pedigree. He has got very good experience of the Premier League and Championship, but at 28 is in his prime."

During his time at Fulham, Stockdale had loan spells with Rotherham United, Leicester City, Plymouth Argyle, Ipswich Town and Hull City.
