Seagulls Swoop for Stokes
West Ham's Tony Stokes has joined Brighton for an initial month long loan, that it likely to be extended. Seagulls boss Mark McGhee told the club's official website. "He's a footballer. He'll get on the ball and make things happen. The reviews that have come out of Rushden have been excellent. Whether he'll play on Saturday we'll have to wait and see, but certainly we would expect him to play his way into the team quickly."
With rumours that Clive Clarke is close to signing for Sunderland and that Mark Noble may be loaned out to Ipswich it looks like West Ham could have a smaller squad than last season.
