The midfielder had been linked with a move back to his native Spain after his previous deal expired at the end of last season.

But the 30-year-old has committed to the Seagulls for a further year under new manager Oscar Garcia.

A statement on Brighton's website read: "David was influential in the club's play-off charge last season - scoring nine times, including a stunning free-kick against Crystal Palace which was voted the goal of the season.

"The former Athletico Bilbao man's previous one-year deal expired at the end of last season but new head coach Oscar Garcia has handed David a new contract with the club."

Gus Poyet lured Lopez to the Amex on a free transfer in September last year, and he made 39 appearances in all competitions.

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
