Brighton and Hove Albion have completed the signing of Vegard Forren, it was announced on the club’s official website.
Vegard Forren joins as a free agent, having left Norwegian outfit Molde in January.
After being strongly linked with a move to Norwegian neighbours Rosenborg, Forren opted instead to team up with Brighton ahead of their promotion challenge.
Brighton were recently hit with a defensive setback as Shane Duffy was ruled out for over a month, joining Conor Goldson (heart condition) on the sidelines.
The Norwegian international – with 33 caps for his country – arrives to bolster the options at centre half as Brighton look to win promotion to the Premier League.
The Seagulls have moved to snap up Forren on a short term deal until the end of the 2016/17 campaign subject to international clearance.
It is the 29-year-old’s second spell in England, having had a short stint at Southampton earlier in his career.
