Brighton & Hove Albion have completed the loan signing of Swansea City striker Leroy Lita.
The 28-year-old, who has not featured for the Premier League side this season, joins Albion until 1 January.
Lita had spells on loan at Championship sides
Brighton were keen to bring in a new striker after
Leo Ulloa was ruled out for two months
with a broken bone in his foot.
Brighton head coach
“He is strong, fast, and direct, and he has shown he can score goals in the Championship”
Former Bristol City and Reading player Lita
joined Swansea from Middlesbrough for £1.75m
in August 2011.
He scored two goals in 18 appearances for the Swans that season but has not featured since Michael Laudrup took charge at the Liberty Stadium last summer.
The former England Under-21 forward scored nine goals in 27 appearances in the Championship during his loan spells with Birmingham and Sheffield Wednesday.
"He is strong, fast and direct, and he has shown he can score goals in the Championship," Brighton head coach Oscar Garcia told the club website.
"He offers us something different going forward."
Lita will be available for Albion's trip to Yeovil Town on Saturday, subject to international clearance.
