Brighton are set to sign former Barcelona full-back Martin Montoya, according to the Daily Mail.

The Spanish 27-year-old made 67 appearances for Barcelona before joining Valencia in 2016. He had been in talks with Fulham but he has now reportedly been contacted by the Seagulls, who are looking to get a deal over the line this afternoon before the transfer window closes.

Ezequiel Schelotto and Bruno are Albion's current options at right-back.

Brighton are also set to sign defender Dan Burn from Wigan before the transfer window closes but will loan him back to the Championship side.
