Brighton have signed goalkeeper David Button from Fulham on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 29-year-old is Brighton's fifth first-team signing of the summer transfer window.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton said, "We're delighted to bring a goalkeeper of David's experience to the club.

"With Christian Walton and Robert Sanchez going out on loan this season, we felt we needed someone to provide further competition for places in that area of the team.

"He has a wealth of experience, having made over 300 appearances during his career so far, and I'm sure he will work well with Maty Ryan and Jason Steele."

Button began his career at Tottenham, before loan spells with a number of sides including Shrewsbury and Plymouth.
