Brighton bag Montoya from Valencia on deadline day

(Reuters) - Brighton and Hove Albion signed right back Martin Montoya from Spanish side Valencia on a four-year contract on Thursday, the Premier League club said here

Montoya, 27, a former Barcelona and Inter Milan defender, who made more than 50 appearances for Valencia over the past two seasons, is Brighton’s 10th signing of a busy transfer window.

“Martin’s pedigree is excellent, and I’m delighted we have been able to add a player of his standing to our squad. There is no doubt he will improve our options in the right back position,” manager Chris Houghton said.

“He has a wealth of experience, at 27 years old he is a very good age, and I’m now looking forward to working with him.”
