Brighton & Hove Albion have swooped to snap up Tottenham youngster Mark Yeates on a month's loan.

Midfielder Yeates becomes Mark McGhee's first signing as Brighton boss - and could go straight into the side to face Bristol City on Saturday.

"I want to do well for myself and to help Brighton get up the table a little bit," Yeates told the club's official website.

"Then hopefully Tottenham can see what I can do and then give me a chance in The Premiership.

"It's really just to get some experience and get some first team football - that's the main thing."
