Brighton have announced the club-record signing of Holland midfielder Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven on a four-year contract.
The central midfielder has arrived for a fee in the region of £10million and it eclipses their record fee of £5million, which they paid for Mathew Ryan earlier in the summer.
The 25-year-old has played more than 250 games in his homeland, scoring 43 goals, including Champions League and international appearances.
Chris Hughton told the club’s website: “Davy is a player with great experience of the Eredivisie with Vitesse Arnhem and PSV Eindhoven.
“There is no doubting his pedigree, Davy has played a number of matches in the Champions League for PSV, as well as international football for the Netherlands.
“He’s a strong competitor as a central midfielder and will complement our existing midfield players, and he is also a really good age at 25; we are absolutely delighted to welcome him to the club.”
