Championship side Brighton have agreed a deal to sign Norway defender Vegard Forren until the end of the season.

Forren, 29, arrives as cover for centre-back Shane Duffy who is set to miss the majority of the rest of the campaign with a broken metatarsal.

Capped 33 times by his country, he failed to make an appearance for Southampton after joining the club from Molde in Norway in January 2013.

He returned to Molde after Saints, who released him in January.
