BRIGHTON boss Graham Potter says Danny Welbeck has made a “really good first impression” at the club ahead of a possible debut against West Brom on Monday.
The 29-year-old forward joined the Seagulls last weekend on a one-year deal following his departure from Watford.
Asked about Welbeck’s potential involvement in Monday’s game on the south coast, Potter said yesterday: “We’ll see, he’s only had a couple of days with us but he’s made a really good first impression.
“He’s a really fit guy, he’s looked after himself really well as a professional. It’s just about integrating him with the team. He’s had a session today and we’ve got a couple more before the game.
“We’ll probably take the decision as close as we can to the game. But he’s looking good, he’s made a really good impression.”
Welbeck netted twice in 18 Premier League games for Watford last season, including an effort in their final match on July 26 — the 3-2 loss at his old club Arsenal that left the Hornets relegated.
After he wasn’t involved in Watford’s start to 2020-21, the club announced earlier this month that they had reached an agreement to allow the former Man United striker to leave on a free transfer.
Potter added: “We’re delighted with the fact he’s here. I think he brings a lot to the group, on and off the pitch, and our challenge now is just to help him get up to speed because he has not been training with a team for a while.
“We need to get him up to speed to play in the Premier League, and if we do that, I think we’ve got a really good player with us.”
