Albion striker Elvis Manu has joined Championship rivals Huddersfield on a short-term loan.

The former Feyenoord man, who joined the Seagulls in August, has agreed a 93-day loan deal with the Terriers, and completed the paperwork at the American Express Community Stadium this afternoon.

He will travel to Huddersfield this evening could make his debut at Preston North End on Saturday.

Brighton manager Chris Hughton said: “Elvis is keen to play regular football, and we are not able to guarantee him that here at the moment.

“At Huddersfield he will have the opportunity to play more regular football in the Championship, which will be to everyone’s benefit.

“It’s also ideal for us that he is remaining in England, and in particular the Championship, as that means we can monitor his progress.”

Having played for both Albion and Feyenoord this season, Manu is not able to sign for a third club on a window-to-window loan, which means he is restricted to joining Huddersfield on an emergency loan.

He has been limited to just eight sub appearances for Albion, with his solitary start coming in January’s FA Cup third round tie at Hull City.
