Dickinson makes Posh move

Peterborough United boss Jim Gannon has snapped up Brighton & Hove Albion striker Liam Dickinson on loan until the end of the season. He will team up once again with Gannon, who managed him as he made a name for himself when the two were at Stockport County, as well as former Hatters team-mate Tommy Rowe. After leaving County for Derby County, loan moves to Huddersfield Town, Blackpool and Leeds United followed before Brighton made him a permanent signing. After talks with Seagulls boss Gus Poyet, it was agreed that he could make the move to the Championship strugglers. Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "Gus Poyet called me yesterday and said that my old manager Jim Gannon was very interested in me and I jumped at the chance. "It is a really good move for me and I am looking forward to the challenge. "I feel I can bring something a bit different to the side, I am good in the air, can work the channels and hold the ball up. "I have played in the Championship with Derby and Blackpool, so know the division and I know what is expected of me."
