LuaLua blow for Seagulls

The 19-year-old’s loan spell from Newcastle has come to a premature

end after he suffered the injury during Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at

Hartlepool. “This is a major blow as Kaz has been in excellent form

for us this season and at times he’s been our matchwinner,” said

Seagulls boss Gus Poyet. LuaLua’s initial loan with Albion ends on

January 3 but Poyet hopes to bring him back to the south coast once

he is fit again. “We will liaise with Newcastle and their medical

staff and I hope we see Kaz back in Albion colours before the

season ends.”
