Defender Adam Virgo has returned to Brighton on a free transfer from Celtic.
Brighton-born Virgo, who joined the Hoops three years ago in a £1.5 million deal, has signed a two-year contract with the Seagulls.
Virgo was handed his debut by Micky Adams in 2001 and went on to enjoy a four-year stint at the Withdean Stadium.
He has since linked up with Adams again at Coventry and Colchester - where Adams was assistant manager - on loan but has now made a permanent return to the South Coast.
Virgo told the club's official website: "It feels fantastic to be coming home and now I can't wait to get started.
"When I knew the club and Micky were interested it was a very easy decision to make.
"There were other offers on the table, but at this stage of my career I need to be playing regular football and I feel I can achieve that with my hometown club.
"I also feel the Albion are a Championship club in the waiting."
