Brighton boss Potter delighted with deal for Welbeck: Undoubted pedigree

Brighton boss Graham Potter is delighted with their deal for Danny Welbeck.

The former Manchester United, Arsenal and Watford forward has agreed a one-year deal with Albion.

Potter said, “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."

The Manchester-born 29-year-old began his career at Old Trafford. He played close to 100 games for both United and Arsenal.

He has 42 caps for England, and has scored 16 times for his country.

Technical director Dan Ashworth added, “I think Danny's arrival concludes what we feel has been a very good window for the club.

“A lot of planning, diligence and hard work went into the recruitment side, and I would like to thank all the club's different departments for their efforts in achieving that."
