Brighton and Hove Albion have signed Dutch midfielder Danny Holla on a three-year contract.

The 26-year-old former Groningen and Den Haag man has completed a medical and linked up with the Seagulls squad ahead of Tuesday night's trip to Leeds.

Albion boss Sami Hyypia told the club website: "Danny is a player who has plenty of top-flight experience in Holland with more than 200 senior appearances, and that experience is something we need.

"He is a deep-lying midfielder and the scouting reports I have seen on him show he likes to get on the ball, pass it and dictate the play - and I hope he can bring that to the team.

"He's not been with a club during pre-season, so we will need to assess where is in terms of his match fitness, but hopefully we can get him up to speed and ready to go."
