Brighton complete loan deal for Newcastle keeper Harper
Harper has now taken up the opportunity to play some first-team football after agreeing to spend the next month with Championship side Brighton.
"Harps is keen to play," said Pardew in the Evening Chronicle. "It is a real coup for Brighton.
"Steve has been unfortunate to have Tim come through in the way he has.
"He is a top young keeper and will play at the top for years to come."
