. . . Swans striker makes Seagulls switch
Swansea City striker Leroy Lita has joined Championship side Brighton on loan until January 1.
Lita will join up with former team-mates Andrea Orlandi and Kemy Agustien at the Amex Stadium as he looks to strengthen Brighton’s promotion push.
The 28-year-old is yet to appear under Michael Laudrup this season following the arrival of club record signing Wilfried Bony and Alvaro Vazquez, who joined on loan before the transfer deadline.
Lita spent last season on loan in the Championship, scoring nine goals in 27 appearances during spells with Birmingham and Sheffield Wednesday.
The former England Under-21 international originally joined the Swans from Middlesbrough in August 2011 following a £1.75million deal.
He scored in the club’s first Premier League victory over West Brom at the Liberty, with his other Swans goal coming in a 4-2 defeat at Blackburn.
Lita’s last appearance for the club came as a substitute in a Premier League draw at Bolton in April 2012.
