Chris Hughton says that Bobby Zamora will bring new qualities to Brighton & Hove Albion’s forward line.Zamora has penned a one-year deal with the Seagulls after his contract at Queens Park Rangers expired, and he returns to the club where he spent a large part of his early career.
The 34-year-old played for Brighton between 2000 and 2003, scoring 76 times in 125 games for the south coast side, and Hughton believes that his quality can shine through once again.
"We are absolutely delighted to have brought Bobby back to Brighton,” Hughton said to seagulls.co.uk. “He needs absolutely no introduction here. The Albion fans know everything about him, from his achievements in a Brighton shirt and right through his time with Spurs, West Ham, Fulham and QPR.

"I also know Bobby well, having worked with him during his time at Spurs, and he is a great professional; I know he will bring plenty of experience to the team, having played Premier League, European and international football.
"He will also bring a lot in terms of character to the club and to the dressing room - but most importantly, having played more than 30 times for QPR last season, he brings top quality to our offensive options.
"We still have work to do in terms of adding to the squad, including those offensive options, in terms of creating and scoring goals."
