Albion prospect Ben Dickenson and midfielder Matt Sparrow are on the brink of loan moves.

  Teenager striker Dickenson is close to joining a League Two club and the experienced Sparrow is also expected to leave after manager Gus Poyet told him at the start of the season he was not part of his first team plans.

  Poyet said: "We've got two or three options this week. I think we are going to have news today. People have started moving, because we are ten days away from the loan window closing and we've had plenty of calls in the last two or three days, so there is going to be some movement out.
  "At the moment it's players going out, in nothing."

  Poyet revealed last week that Dickenson has attracted interested from a number of clubs in the lower divisions.

  The former Dorchester youngster made his comeback from ankle trouble as a substitute for the development squad against Cardiff at Lancing on Monday night.

  Adam El-Abd has been withdrawn from the Egypt squad for their friendly against Georgia in Tbilisi next week with the hamstring injury which will continue to sidelined the centre half from Saturday's trip to Wolves.

  Poyet said: "We have already talked to them (Egypt). We offered them the chance to talk to the medical staff but he's not going."
