Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey has agreed a loan move to Rotherham United.

As revealed by HITC Sport last week Rotherham boss Alan Stubbs had identified Forster-Caskey as a top target as he looks to strengthen his midfield options at the New York Stadium.

Stubbs is keen to bolster his squad before the start of the new Championship season next month and he is planning to use the loan market to bring in a few new faces.

Talented midfielder Forster-Caskey enjoyed two spells out on loan at MK Dons last season after finding his first-team chances limited at Brighton.

The 22-year-old made 20 appearances for MK Dons last term and Brighton boss Chris Hughton feels he would benefit from going out on loan again this season.

A number of clubs had expressed an interest in signing Forster-Caskey, but Rotherham have moved quickly to agree a deal to bring him to South Yorkshire.

Forster-Caskey's arrival will bring the number of new arrivals Stubbs has brought to the club his arrival from Hibernian this summer to three and and he is expected to make further signings before the close of the transfer window as he looks to avoid a relegation battle next season.
