Brighton and Hove Albion have completed the transfer of Aaron Mooy from Huddersfield Town on a one-year loan deal.

The 28-year-old Australia international joins ahead of Saturday’s season curtain-raiser at Watford, having passed his medical at the American Express Elite Football Performance Centre in Lancing earlier today (Thursday 8 August).

Brighton head coach Graham Potter said: “We are delighted to welcome Aaron to the club.

“He has played very well over the past two seasons in the Premier League and will bring a different option and added competition to our midfield.

“He’s been a talisman for Huddersfield in recent seasons with his performances on the field and he’s proved to be an excellent professional both on and off the pitch.

“I’m looking forward to working with him and he is another good addition to our squad ahead of the new season.”

Mooy was born in Sydney and initially moved to England and Bolton Wanderers in 2006, joining their academy as a teenager.

After two years with Bolton, he left at 18 to join Scottish Premier League side St Mirren to play senior football.

With an hour of the transfer window left, this is expected to conclude Albion’s transfer activity until January.
