Brighton boss Poyet delighted with deal for Man City pair Razak, Assulin

Brighton boss Gus Poyet is delighted with their loan deal for Manchester City pair Abdul Razak and Gai Assulin.

Winger Razak, 19, has signed a three-month loan deal while former Barcelona youngster Assulin, 20, has sealed a one-month temporary switch which can be extended.

Poyet said: "Abdul is the type of midfielder I have wanted to bring into the squad for some time.

"He has the type of characteristics of a midfielder I want to bring, the strength, the power to go box to box, the technical ability.

"He brings plenty of things we didn't have within the squad before he arrived. Gai is technically very capable, and has great ability on the ball.

"He showed great potential as an outstanding young talent under Pep Guardiola at Barcelona - I hope he can realise some of that potential here at Brighton."
