Albion teenager Ben Dickenson has agreed a one-month loan move to Chesterfield and Matt Sparrow is a target for his former club Scunthorpe United.

  The Seagulls have responded to widespread interest in Dickenson from clubs in the lower divisions by allowing him to link up with the Spireites after the 19-year-old former Dorchester striker made his comeback from ankle truble in the development squad on Monday night.

  Out-of-favour midfielder Sparrow, 29, had 11 years at Scunthorpe before signing for the Seagulls in 2010.

  Brian Laws, back at Scunthorpe as manager, said: "It's the very early stages. I've spoken to Gus Poyet on a couple of occasions. Again, I've thrown my begging hat in and hoping we get something from it."
