Brighton have confirmed the signing of former Spain midfielder Vicente Rodriguez.
The 30-year-old left Valencia in the summer and has joined the Seagulls on a one-year deal.
Vicente has been capped 38 times by his country, and also has two Primera Division titles and a UEFA Cup winner's medal to his name.
Albion manager Gus Poyet told the club's official website: "Vicente is the special player we wanted.
"He has great qualities in terms of his ability and flexibility to play in a range of different positions.
"He also brings a great experience having played at the top level for the last 10 years with Valencia.
"This is a major coup to bring him to the Amex."
