Albion Seal David Deal

31 January 2014

Oscar Garcia has further strengthened his squad by bringing in La Liga striker David Rodriguez on a free transfer. 

The Spaniard, 27, cancelled his contract with Celta Vigo yesterday and earlier today signed with the Seagulls until the end of the season.

The deal remains subject to international clearance, but provided that comes through today, he will be available for Sunday's trip to Watford. 

Oscar told, “We wanted to add more competition to our striking options and David will bring that.

"He's shown throughout his career he is capable of scoring goals. He can play in all attacking positions. 

"The challenge for him now is to push for a place in the team and prove between now and the end of the season he is worth a longer-term deal with the club."

Rodriguez has played for Celta Vigo, Almeria and Sporting Gijon during his time in Spain and moves to England with 38 career goals to his name in 112 appearances.
