Brighton & Hove Albion have snapped up Liam Ridgewell on loan.
Of the arrival of the former Aston Villa, Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion centre-back, Hughton told the club's official website: "I know Liam very well from my time as manager at Birmingham City, and he is an excellent and important addition for us.
"He will bring extra experience to our defence at a crucial time, and will give me an option both in the centre of defence and at left-back.
"Liam has played the vast majority of his career in the Premier League - with more than 350 senior appearances; he's also got experience of the Europa League and Championship from his time at Birmingham."
Really happy to have join Brighton looking forward to the games coming up. Thanks for all the good tweets pic.twitter.com/MdhIk9UwGF
