Brighton & Hove Albion have completed a permanent deal for Newcastle winger Kazenga LuaLua for an undisclosed fee.

The 20-year-old has signed a three-year deal with the Seagulls after three successful loan spells.

He told the club website: "Since I came to the club in August, it was always my intention to sign a permanent deal, so this is a really happy day for me.

"Now I've signed this contract, I can put my mind at rest and focus completely on my football."

He added: "I have come here because I feel Brighton is the place where I can really kick on with my career.

I haven't played as much as I would have liked this season, having picked up an injury after the opening game of the season

"At Newcastle, I wasn't really involved in the first-team squad that often and at my age, I want to start playing regular football."

LuaLua has made 11 appearances in each of the last three seasons for Brighton, although nine of this season's have come from the bench.

"I haven't played as much as I would have liked this season, having picked up an injury after the opening game of the season," he said.

"But I'm training hard, keeping my head down, and I'm determined to take my chance when I get it."
