Danny Welbeck joins Watford: Former Arsenal, Manchester United striker indicators one-year deal


Danny Welbeck has signed for Brighton on a one-year deal following his departure from Watford.

The 29-year-old former Arsenal forward was a free agent after his £100,000-a-week contract with Watford was terminated by mutual consent earlier this month.

Welbeck is hoping to kickstart his career at Brighton after years of injury problems and their head coach Graham Potter believes he still has “undoubted pedigree”.

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.”

Welbeck featured 20 times for Watford last season and left following their relegation from the Premier League.

He will wear the No18 shirt at Brighton and will be available to make his debut when they play West Brom next Monday.
