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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
