Former Manchester United and Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck has joined Brighton and Hove Albion.

The 29-year-old, who left Watford at the end of last season, signed a one-year contract with Graham Potter’s team.

It could be in line to debut in the Premier League game against West Brom on October 26.

“We are delighted that Danny is joining us. It will complement our existing eye-catching options, “Potter said via Brighton’s website.

“He has an unquestionable pedigree, he is fast and technically very good. He will add to our attacking threat and we are delighted to add another player of his experience and quality. “

Welbeck has only started nine league games in the past two seasons, having suffered significant injury problems in recent years.

Welbeck, a 2012-13 Premier League winner with United, the club he joined as a child, moved to Arsenal in 2014 after Louis van Gaal deemed him in excess of requirements.

He had four goals and three assists in 27 league games in his first season with the Gunners and scored against his old club to eliminate them from the FA Cup at Old Trafford, but missed the final weeks of the season with a knee injury that then required surgery.

Welbeck, who has been caps for England 42 times, finally returned in February 2016 only to suffer another knee injury that saw him miss Euro 2016 and kept him out for almost another year.

He worked his way back to the Arsenal squad and made 28 league appearances in 2017-18, but a broken ankle suffered in a Europa League game with Sporting CP effectively ended his Gunners career.

After his contract with Arsenal expired last year, he signed for Watford, scoring three goals in 20 games in all competitions before being released in October.
