Returning striker Bobby Zamora has told the club's website Brighton & Hove Albion was the one club he wanted to sign for this season.
Zamora said, "I was holding out for it, I wanted to come back and everything just fell in place.
"I had a few offers from abroad but I turned those down, and now I'm happy to be back at Brighton where it all started.
"I just hope I do myself justice. There is going to be quite a lot of pressure and the fans are going to be expecting a lot, but they can rest assured I will be doing my best.
"I've spoken to Chris Hughton and he said we've been in almost every game, and only lost by one goal in the majority of games we lost last season.
"Hopefully I can make a difference and score one or two goals and get Brighton to where they should be. Promotion is the goal and I'm looking forward to the new season."

Zamora told Albion's matchday programme in 2011 that one day he hoped to return to the club for whom he scored 83 goals in just over three seasons.
He added, "I have always said that I wanted to come back one day. Now I'm here, I'm pleased to sign on the dotted line and to be back where I started.
"Just walking into the training ground and seeing the whole building and all the pitches is mind blowing and seeing where the club has come from 15 years ago.
"I'm so pleased for the club, I always kept an eye out for them, speaking to whoever was here at the time. More recently it's been Nathan Jones who is first team coach."
