Stoke's Upson joins Brighton on loan

Stoke central defender Matthew Upson has joined Championship side Brighton on loan for the rest of the season.

Matthew Upson joined Stoke on a free transfer last summer
Upson is a Seagull until the end of the season

Upson, 33, has found first team opportunities at the Britannia this season limited as Stoke boss Tony Pulis favours a partnership of Ryan Shawcross and Robert Huth.

The former England international, capped 21 times, could make his debut for the Seagulls when they travel to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

Brighton boss Gus Poyet told the club’s official website: “Everybody knows we have been looking for a player in that position.

“When we had the chance to bring a player with the quality of Matt until the end of the season, we went for him.

“He’s experienced, he’s been a regular Premier League player and there were no doubts about it. He has presence, and he’s a leader as well.

“The teams at the top of this league have very experienced players and that gives you the extra bit when you need it. That experience will be important and the rest of the players will learn a lot from him, too.”

Upson began his career at Luton Town and has also played for Arsenal, Birmingham and West Ham and said he was looking forward to the challenge of helping Brighton’s promotion push.

“It’s a really good opportunity for me - I have not been playing as much football as I would have liked this season,” he said. “It’s a chance for me to play until the end of the season.

“I’ve heard lots of positive things about Gus and his management style, and the whole package here at Brighton is very exciting for me.”
