    Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion have signed French winger Anthony Knockaert from Standard Liege for an undisclosed fee.

    The 24-year-old, who joined the Belgian club from Leicester City last summer, has agreed a three-and-a-half-year contract with the Seagulls.

    Albion manager Chris Hughton told the official club website: "He was somebody I was interested in for a number of reasons. He is a good technical player and has experience of the Championship."

    "He is a different type of player to the wide players we have here. He can play in three positions; on the left, off the front man, but predominantly in his previous time here in England he played on the right side.

    "He is used to having a responsibility in the wide areas but mostly it is [about] what he can bring us offensively in terms of goals and assists.”

    Knockaert spent three years with the Foxes, scoring 16 goals in 106 appearances for them, before moving to Belgium.
