The 21-year-old had several loan spells away from the Amex, beginning with helping Worthing win promotion from the Ryman League South Division in 2016 when he scored eight goals in six games.

He then made 46 appearances and scored 15 goals during his time with Dagenham in 2016/17, while he was also part of the Coventry squad that won the League Two play-off Final against Exeter City in May 2018.

Maguire-Drew also had a loan spell at Lincoln and was on loan at Wrexham for the first half of this season.

Brighton under-23 coach Simon Rusk said: “This is a good move for Jordan, and one that will allow him to play regular first-team football.

“I’d like to thank Jordan for his contribution during his time at the club, and I wish him all the very best for the future.”
