Northern Ireland international midfielder Oliver Norwood has joined Brighton & Hove Albion from Championship rivals Reading for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old, who started all four of Northern Ireland's Euro 2016 fixtures, joins the Seagulls on a three-year deal.

Norwood, who started his career at Manchester United, joined Huddersfield in the summer of 2012 before signing for Reading in August 2014 - where he made 92 appearances, netting five times.

"Oliver is another excellent addition to our squad," Brighton manager Chris Hughton told the club website.

"He had a good grounding at Manchester United and has a wealth of Championship and international level."

He added: "He's a box-to-box midfielder and an excellent passer of the ball, so he gives us extra options in midfield and adds further depth to our squad."
