New Brighton signing Andrew Whing says joining the Seagulls from Coventry City was an easy decision to make.
The 22-year-old right-back, who spent three months on loan at Brighton last season, was wanted by several clubs.
Whing told Albion's website: "I am delighted to be here. I am glad I can look forward to the season rather than speculate which team I am joining.
"Brighton boss Dean Wilkins and his assistant Dean White worked hard to get me here and I can't thank them enough."
