Brighton & Hove Albion have signed Norwegian international Guro Bergsvand on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

The versatile defender, 28, brings a wealth of experience to the defence, having played for Stabaek, Lyn, and SK Brann in Norway’s Toppserien.

Head coach Jens Scheuer told “Firstly we are happy that Guro has chosen to join us, I am sure that she will help us stabilise the defence.

“She has a lot of experience domestically in Norway as well as with her national team so it’s a really good signing for us.

“We are convinced by her quality, so I have no doubt that she won’t need long to adapt to the league.”
