Albion duo on the move

The Argus: Matt Sparrow (centre), poised to follow Ben Dickenson through the exit door Matt Sparrow (centre), poised to follow Ben Dickenson through the exit door

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  Adam El-Abd has been withdrawn from the Egypt squad for their friendly against Georgia in Tbilisi next week with the hamstring injury which will continue to sidelined the centre half from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

Two out, nobody in?
How about Kenwyne Jones (Stoke), Bobby Zamora (QPR), neither in the first team at present. Also, and I can't think of his name, the Chelsea player languishing in the reserves or below - surely must be better for Chelsea to get some of his wages paid. Same goes for the other two

Although not necessarily in the starting XI, both KJ and BZ are getting time on the pitch, so it's not really going to happen. I'd love to be proved wrong.

Makes sense sending Dickenson out for some more experience especially now Hoskins is back and fit.

If you read what Gus said, it's obvious he didn't mean it literally for goodness sake.

When names are mentioned as possible loan deals for us to take you have to remember the all important thing, do they want to come to Brighton!

Just because we might want them they just might not want us.

They might not - although for the first time since I arrived in Brighton in 1991, we are an attractive club to join at the moment. That certainly was not the case during the Goldstone Deaththroes Years, the twilight Gillingham years, and the Portakabin Withdean years... when we pretty much had to capture and threaten an member of a players family to get them to agree to join us.

Albion's current crop of midfielders have not actually scored this year. Sparrow scored two against Southampton last season, but he did not look any better at shooting for the reserves than the others,

Why would they tell you lies at Crawley ? It makes no sense.
