Brighton have been quick to prepare for life in the Premier League by signing Pascal Gross from Bundesliga club Ingolstadt for an undisclosed fee.
Midfielder Gross, who joined Ingolstadt in 2012, has agreed a four-year deal with the Seagulls and will complete his move on July 1, subject to international clearance.

Boss Chris Hughton told the club’s official website: “We are delighted Pascal has opted to sign for us, amid interest from a number of clubs from the Premier League and across Europe, and I am pleased to welcome him to the club.
“He offers something different to our existing midfielders, as an attacking midfielder in a more advanced position, operating behind the forward line, he will give us a different and new option going into the new season.”
