Seagulls swoop for Racon

20 March 2008 03:15
Brighton & Hove Albion have signed Charlton Athletic midfielder Therry Racon on loan for the rest of the season. The 23-year-old Frenchman joined the Addicks at the start of the current campaign from Guingamp, while he also played for Marseille and Lorient earlier on in his career. Racon has made six appearances for Charlton to date, but has not featured for Alan Pardew's side since Boxing Day. Meanwhile, Seagulls utility man Adam El-Abd could miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury. The 23-year-old was injured during the midweek defeat at Huddersfield Town and has been ruled out for well over a month with ligament damage.
