Albion fans have been told their side has just undergone an upgrade with the addition of Adrian Colunga.

The former Getafe striker has signed a two-year deal with the Seagulls after passing a medical last night.

Colunga, 29, was previously with Sporting Gijon, who also rank among the former clubs of ex-Seagulls frontman David Rodriguez.

Albion have been told they have signed a Rodriguez-type attacker – but better - in 5ft 9ins, Oviedo-born Colunga.

Reporter Javier Barrio of the El Comercio de Gijon newspaper said: “He is a very good player. His style is similar to David Rodriguez but Adrian is a far better player.

“I think his natural place in Spain is in the first division. He is very competitive.”
