Romanian striker Florin Andone is to join Brighton & Hove Albion from Deportivo La Coruna on June 8.

Brighton & Hove Albion have confirmed that an agreement is in place to sign striker Florin Andone from Deportivo La Coruna.

The 25-year-old, who scored 18 goals across 69 appearances for the Spanish club, will officially join the Seagulls on June 8.

Brighton had been closing in on a deal for the 21-cap Romania international, with Chris Hughton making clear that he required more firepower ahead of his side's second campaign in the Premier League.

Hughton is glad to have got the transfer done and dusted early in the window, with reports suggesting that the transfer is worth a little over £5m.

"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 told the club's official website.

"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 arrived at Deportivo in July 2016 on the back of a campaign that saw him net 27 times in 58 games for Cordoba.
