Brighton under-23 forward James Tilley has joined National League side Yeovil Town on a season-long loan deal.

The 21-year-old has made two Premier League 2 appearances for the Seagulls this season, but will head to Huish Park for the remainder of the campaign, following a loan spell at Cork City last season.

Albion under-23 coach Simon Rusk said, “James benefited from spending the second half of last season playing in Ireland’s top division, and now he’ll get a taste of senior football in England.

“The National League will provide a different kind of test for James, which can only be a good thing.

“Yeovil will be hoping to bounce back after dropping out of the Football League, and it’s a great challenge and opportunity for James to take on.”
