Iwelumo moves to Albion
Stoke City forward Chris Iwelumo has agreed a move to Brighton.

Seagulls boss Mark McGhee has clinched a deal to sign Iwelumo for the rest of the season.

Iwelumo, who began his career at St Mirren, has not featured for Stoke's first-team since January and has been allowed to move on.

The 25-year-old has had loan spells with Cheltenham and York City since joining Stoke from Preston for 25,000 in February 2000.

McGhee told BBC SCR: "He has physical presence and strength.

"We hope he's the type of player to build play and allow us to get forward a la Trevor Benjamin.

"He's been brought in to earn himself a contract."
