Stoke City's Steve Sidwell completes loan move to Brighton & Hove Albion

Steve Sidwell leaves Stoke City to join Brighton & Hove Albion on loan until the end of the season.

Fulham, where Sidwell spent three years of his career before joining Stoke in 2014, were also thought to be interested, but the midfielder has opted for the Seagulls.

Manager Chris Hughton told the club's official website: "Steve is an experienced player who has played virtually his entire career in the Premier League. He knows this club, as well as a few of the squad and will supplement our existing midfield options.

"Beram Kayal, Dale Stephens, Andrew Crofts and others have been excellent in midfield for us this season, but we also need to make sure we have good options in every position of the team, and options which will be enough for us through until the end of the season.

"Steve brings that, and in addition, he is another experienced head - he is a player who's proven at the very top level of English football. Brighton fans will know Steve is also a great athlete and top professional, so I'm absolutely delighted he has decided to join us."

Sidwell has made just four appearances in all competitions for Stoke this season.
