Danny Welbeck is back in the Premier League after signing for Brighton and Hove Albion after agreeing to a one-year deal with the club.
Brighton announced the signing of Danny Welbeck on a one-year deal on Sunday. The striker was previously with Watford, but they released him after their relegation to the Championship.
As a result, the former Arsenal and Manchester United forward was available on a free transfer. Brighton decided to pick him up, with head coach Graham Potter saying: “He’s got an undoubted pedigree, and he is quick and technically very good.
“He will add to our attacking threat and we are thrilled to add another player of his experience and quality.”
It’s great to see Welbeck back in the Premier League. Although things never quite worked out for him at Arsenal, with all the injuries, he still had a few moments to look back on fondly.
The primary two memorable occasions were his goals against Leicester City in 2015/16 and in the FA Cup run away to Manchester United in 2014/15.
Arsenal ended up lifting the trophy that season, and on a personal note, it was my first trip to Old Trafford for a match. I’ll always be grateful for that night of rubbing it in United fan faces and singing his song all the way home.
If he can grab a couple of goals against Arsenal’s big-six rivals this season, that would only make him more popular. Good luck to him either way!
