Forster-Caskey played six times for the Seagulls last season, scoring two goals for the Championship club.

In May 2010, the highly-rated 18-year-old became the youngest player to appear for Brighton when he came on against Yeovil on the last day of the season.

Forster-Caskey has represented England at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-18 level.

U's boss Chris Wilder told the club's official website: "We've worked very hard to get Jake and have got him until January which is really good. He's a very exciting young player.

"He's a left-footed midfield player that gets forward, likes to get into the box and is very highly rated at Brighton. He's just signed a new contract there and hopefully he can add to a lot of the talent that we already have here in central midfield."

othing screams 'Panic!!' when your new manager brings Fellaini on as a sub for your star signing of the summer and within 5 minutes you concede the winner. I know it is only the first game in but I would seriously be sh1**ng myself I was a Man Utd supporter. This has the potential of being very nasty indeed.

n the words of Pete Townsend, meet the new boss, the same as the old boss. Though I would comment that it's 3 more points than we picked up in the same fixture last year, so that's a 100% improvement.
