The Austria international, who trained with his new team-mates for the first time on Thursday, is Brighton’s third signing of the transfer window following the arrivals of goalkeeper Mathew Ryan and midfielder Pascal Gross, who also joined from Ingolstadt.
Manager Chris Hughton told the club’s website: “Markus is someone we have been aware of for some time and I am pleased we have managed to complete the transfer at this stage and he is now able to join us for the second half of the week.
“He has a great level of experience internationally and in the top divisions in both his native Austria and Germany, where he has played the last two seasons with Ingolstadt, and that experience will serve us well.
