Serbian international midfielder Dejana Stefanovic has signed for Brighton & Hove Albion on an 18-month contract.

The 25-year-old joins Albion after three seasons at Valerenga in the Norwegian Toppserien, having also previously played at ASPTT Albi and Avaldsnes.

At international level, Stefanovic was a regular within the Serbian national team in their journey to the qualifying group stage of the European Championships last summer.

Head coach Jen Scheuer told “I know her from playing for the Serbia national team, she has done really well for her country.

“She is a strong midfielder and good at the defensive side, but she can build up the game as well.

“She has also got the physical strength that we need in midfield.”
