‘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.’

The 29-year-old will add to Brighton’s attacking options, which include Neal Maupay and Aaron Connolly.  

Welbeck, who has 42 England caps, made 20 appearances for Watford last season and scored three goals.  

Prior to that he was at Arsenal, where he won the FA Cup but endured much frustration with injuries.

Welbeck started out at Manchester United, for whom he scored 29 times in 142 games. During his time at United he took in loan spells at Preston North End and Sunderland.
