Brighton & Hove Albion confirm Anthony Knockaert signing

Brighton & Hove Albion confirm the signing of Anthony Knockaert on a three-and-a-half year deal.

Brighton & Hove Albion have completed the signing of French winger Anthony Knockaert from Standard Liege.

The 24-year-old has penned a three-and-a-half year deal on the South Coast just six months after joining the Belgian side on a free transfer from Leicester City.

"Once I knew that there was a possibility that Anthony was available, he was somebody I was interested in bringing to the club for a number of reasons," said Seagulls manager Chris Hughton.

"He is a different type of player to the wide players we have here; he can play in three positions, on the left, off the front man, but predominantly in his previous time here in England he played on the right side."

Knockaert, who was part of the Foxes side that won promotion to the Premier League in 2014, scored five goals in 20 appearances at Liege in the first half of the campaign.
