Brighton & Hove Albion left-back Adam Chicksen has joined League Two Leyton Orient in a one-month loan deal.
The defender has yet to make an appearance for the Seagulls this season and Chris Hughton highlighted the importance of Chicksen getting some first-team action.
He told seagulls.co.uk, "Adam is a very professional and determined player and he needs to be playing.
"He takes extremely good care of himself, has a terrific attitude and approach and he wants to play first-team football - so this loan move will provide him with that chance.
"This will not only be of benefit to him and Leyton Orient, but also to us as a club as it means we have another player out on loan gaining valuable competitive first-team experience.
"It now means we have Glen Rea, Jake Forster-Caskey and Adam out on loan, learning and growing as players, which is good for their future and that of the club."

Orient are currently sitting in the League Two play-off places as they seek an immediate return to League One following their relegation last season.
It is the second time Chicksen has been on loan to Leyton Orient in his career, having made three appearances for the London club during a one-month stint back in January 2012 when he was loaned from his then parent club, MK Dons.
Chicksen has made 12 appearances for Albion since joining from MK Dons in July 2013, and he had loan spells with Gillingham and Fleetwood Town last year.
