Abdul Razak and Gai Assulin have joined Brighton and Hove Albion on loan. The Seagulls, managed by former Chelsea and Spurs star Gus Poyet, are just two points off the play-off positions and now have two promising Blues to help in their quest for a first stab at the Premier League. Assulin has recently returned to action after an injury that prevented him from joining Barnsley on loan last November, and his deal sees him join Brighton until 19 March.

Uefa is awaiting the official report from Manchester City's Europa League victory at Porto before deciding whether to act on the club's complaint that Mario Balotelli was racially abused by a section of the home support. A Uefa spokesman said: "We are aware of Manchester City's claims and we are still waiting for the official report from the match delegate. That usually arrives one or two days after the match. The procedure then is if something like this is included in the report, then our disciplinary unit will have a look at it and decided if a case needs to be opened."

Manchester City can confirm that Stuart Taylor has not had his contract renewed and has left the club. The goalkeeper arrived at City last summer and understudied Shay Given for most of the season, making one first team appearance against Scunthorpe United in the FA Cup last January. Unluckily for Stuart, a knee injury towards the end of the season prevented him from replacing Shay Given in the side after the Irishman dislocated a shoulder against Arsenal.
