Brighton boss Gus Poyet was delighted with Abdul Razak's performance in victory over Ipswich.
Poyet believes the arrival of Razak could give his side momentum at a crucial stage of the season.
"Razak has steel and is totally different to what we've got," said the Uruguayan. "He picks out everyone on the pitch with his passing, even from 40 yards and that is quality.
"No one knocked him off the ball, either. He's solid, massive and it's nice when you have a player who is doing something unique.
"We will try and keep him until the end of the season, and hopefully use him all the time."
