Poyet brought in Leonardo Ulloa, Vitalijs Maksimenko and Emil Asmundssen before the transfer deadline and also secured Matt Upson on loan for the rest of the campaign.

The Seagulls are currently eighth in the Championship and Poyet wants the soath-coast club to be equipped for life in the top flight.

"I want this club, the coaches and players to be ready for the Premier League so I want us to be used to playing under Premier League rules," he said.

"The loan system is different in the Premier League and managers who have relied on it to get into the Premier League will struggle when they get there.

"They will miss that system. You don't normally have the options of loans outside of the transfer window, it's just in the Football League in England, so I'm not planning any loan moves."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
