Brighton & Hove Albion have today completed the signing of 29 year old Spanish forward Adrián Colunga from Liga BBVA side Getafe.

Colunga was at the Amex Stadium yesterday, as he watched his new side beat Bolton Wanderers 2-1. He passed his medical late last night and finalised the deal today.

During his time at Getafe, Colunga scored 18 times in 82 appearances, and during last season Colunga made just the 16 starts scoring 4 times.

The acquisition of Colunga is new manager Sami Hyypiä’s 11th signing of the summer, following the transfers of Chris O’Grady and Paddy Mc’Court to name two, as Hyypiä aims to create a side that can once again push towards the play offs.

With Craig Mackail Smith scoring his first league goal since the 2012-13 season, plus the two goals in three games for loan signing João Carlos Teixeira, and with another new striker at the club, Brighton can look forward to another season of being in and around the play offs.
