Brighton have announced the signing of former Spain international midfielder Vicente Rodriguez.

As revealed by skysports.com earlier this week, Brighton had lined up a sensational move for the 30-year-old.

Vicente left Valencia in the summer and attracted interest from a number of top European and English clubs before opting for a one-year deal at Championship new boys Brighton.

Brighton boss Gus Poyet was delghted to land the experienced performer, having won 38 caps for his country and a couple of La Liga titles and a Uefa Cup final with Valencia.

"Vicente is the special player we wanted," Poyet told the club's official website.

"He has great qualities in terms of his ability and flexibility to play in a range of different positions, so plenty of quality.

"He also brings a great experience having played at the top level for the last ten years with Valencia, including the Champions League and Uefa Cup, and with Spain.

"Throughout his career, he has always attracted great interest from top clubs across Europe so this is a major coup to bring him to the Amex.

"I am sure the supporters will have seen him in action in La Liga or in the Champions League and will be very excited by the prospect of seeing him in a Brighton shirt."
