Albion are lining up Christian Walton for another loan move before the window shuts.

The Seagulls are keen to broaden the England under-21 goalkeeper's experience with a third spell away from the Amex this season.

Walton has already been on loan in the current campaign to Bury and home town club Plymouth Argyle.

Manager Chris Hughton told The Argus: "The loan window finishes on Thursday (next) and we are still looking to develop his game.

"He has learnt and certainly got experience from the loan periods he's had so far.

"He experienced highs and lows as well, which is really good for a young goalkeeper.

"Certainly, if that opportunity comes again before the deadline it's something we would look at and very much listen to."

Walton has been relegated to third choice since the signing last summer of Niki Maenpaa, who is in the Finland squad for friendlies later this month away to Poland and Norway.

Hughton said: "Niki has played an important role. We've been really delighted with him. He has supported David Stockdale very well.

"The unfortunate thing for him is David has been in good form all season and hasn't picked up an injury."
