Brighton agree deal for Romanian striker from Deportivo La Coruna

Brighton and Hove Albion have agreed a deal to sign Deportivo La Coruna striker Florin Andone for an undisclosed fee. The Romanian forward will be joining the Premier League on June 8 when the transfer window opens and he will sign a five-year contract.

Andone signed for Deportivo two seasons ago and has made 69 appearances and scoring 18 goals. Manager Chris Hughton told the club’s website: “We are delighted that Florin has agreed to join us. He is a player that we have tracked for some time, and he will add a new dimension to our attacking options.”

“He is a very hard-working player, and has proven his quality at the highest level in Spain, as well as at international level. I am looking forward to working with him next season.” Andone is the second player that has been signed by Brighton for next season after Nigerian international Leon Balogun was signed on Tuesday.
