CHERRIES have snapped up Brighton star Marcos Painter on loan as cover for injured full-back Charlie Daniels.

Painter, 26, will remain at Dean Court until the end of the season and is available for tomorrow's clash at Preston.

The Birmingham-born defender started his career at St Andrews before joining Swansea City in 2007.

Painter remained at the Liberty Stadium until 2010 when he sealed a loan move to Brighton. The deal was made permanent later that year when Painter penned a two-year deal with the Seagulls.
