Poyet baffled by lack of interest
Albion boss Gus Poyet is baffled that two of his players are still on the shelf.
Matt Sparrow and Romain Vincelot were both told at the start of the season their futures lie elsewhere.
The August transfer window came and went without a move for the experienced midfielder and versatile Frenchman.
Now, six weeks into the loan window, Poyet has revealed there is no sign of the situation changing.
He told The Argus: “There has been nothing, which surprises me. They are proven players, even in our division, so I don’t know why.
“It’s hard to accept and to understand but that’s the way it is.”
Sparrow, 29, has made nearly 400 league appearances for Albion and Scunthorpe, including 80 at Championship level.
Vincelot, 27 later this month, featured in a third of Albion’s Championship fixtures last season following a £100,000 switch from Dagenham and Redbridge.
Poyet also confirmed to The Argus it is all quiet in terms of the Seagulls making any temporary additions to their squad.
Albion will have played seven more matches before the loan window shuts on November 22.
Saturday’s visitors Middlesbrough expect Dutch striker Marvin Emnes (foot) and ex-England defender Jonathan Woodgate (hamstring) to be fit for the trip to The Amex.
