Brighton bring in Leeds United striker Billy Paynter

Paynter has made 24 appearances in total for Leeds, scoring once

Brighton have signed striker Billy Paynter on loan from Championship rivals Leeds United until 2 January.

The 27-year-old has started just eight league games and scored one goal for Leeds since his free transfer move from Swindon Town in June 2010.

Boss Gus Poyet told Albion's website: "We wanted him when he was leaving Swindon but we lost out. We wanted him in the summer but couldn't get him.

"We wanted someone who was different to what we have here."

Seagulls manager Poyet added: "I expect him to come in and help us by giving us an option we don't have.

"It gives us the opportunity to have a look at him for a few weeks and for him to have a look at us."

Paynter started his career at Port Vale and has also played for Hull, Southend and Bradford.
