Australia goalkeeper Mathew Ryan set for Seagulls switch
Brighton have agreed the signing of Australia goalkeeper Mathew Ryan from Valencia.
The newly-promoted Seagulls say the undisclosed fee for the 25-year-old is a club record.
Ryan has agreed a five-year contract and replaces David Stockdale, who left the Amex Stadium to join Birmingham earlier this week.
Brighton manager Chris Hughton said on the club website: "I'm delighted that we've been able to attract Mathew to the club, and he will certainly be an excellent addition to the squad in time for our first season in the Premier League.
"We're very much looking forward to working with him for the season ahead.
"For somebody of Mathew's age, he has very good experience, having played in the top divisions in Australia, Belgium and Spain.
"He has also competed in European competition and made a number of appearances at international level."
