Former Arsenal and Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck has joined Brighton and Hove Albion on a one-year deal after terminating his contract with Watford. The 29-year-old agreed to terminate his contract with the Hornets last week and was available on a free transfer. Brighton have confirmed the signing on their official website and social media channels.
“We are delighted to have Danny joining us,” Brighton boss Graham Potter told the club’s official website. “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 started his career in the youth academy of Man United and spent a large part of his career with the Red Devils. In 2015 he joined Arsenal and he has made close to 100 appearances in the Premier League for both clubs. He has also been capped 42 times by England and he has scored 16 goals for his country.
