Brighton had been closing in on Propper's signature after opening advanced talks with him at the weekend and, with five days to go before their home league opener against Manchester City, the transfer has now been finalised.

Premier League newcomers Brighton and Hove Albion signed Dutch worldwide Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven on a four-year contract on Monday. He has signed a four-year contract and is reported to have cost the Seagulls a fee of around 6.6 million euros.

The fee which Brighton laid out for Propper tops the payment of around 5.5 million euros that the club are believed to have paid Valencia to bring in Australian goalkeeper Maty Ryan in June.

"I'm a box-to-box midfielder who can attack and defend, and I think my passing record is good".

Propper also joins the likes of Markus Suttne, Pascal Gross, Mathias Normann and Izzy Brown as new signings at the south coast side this summer.

Propper, 25, joined PSV from Vitesse in 2015, and has proven himself as a goalscoring midfielder in the Netherlands, notching 22 goals in 87 games for the club whilst winning one Eredivisie title.

Speaking live to Jim White at the club's Lancing training ground, Brighton chief executive Paul Barber said ahead of the move: "We're working very hard and if it comes off it would be a club-record, for certain".
