Gus Poyet has revealed why he is a fan of Will Hoskins after signing the Bristol Rovers striker on a two-year contract.

Albion confirmed the deal just hours after admitting striker Glenn Murray was on his way.

Hoskins impressed against the Seagulls last term and scored 20 goals for relegated Rovers.

Poyet has been tracking him closely since last summer.

The Albion boss said: "He will bring plenty of qualities and a different option for the team up front.

"He is able to play up front on his own, even though he is not a target man, but he can also play on the shoulder or play wide and cut in, especially from the left, so he is adaptable to playing three strikers up front.

"He's also very good at linking and he's very gifted technically, so he gives us different options depending on the game and the opposition."
