Beppe Sannino has praised the character and personality of Keith Andrews following the Bolton Wanderers midfielder’s loan move to Watford.

Andrews joined the Golden Boys on a season-long loan last week and played 55 minutes during the 5-0 victory over St Albans City on Saturday.

The 33-year-old has played for 11 clubs, has Premier League experience and has 35 caps for the Republic of Ireland, starting all three of their games at Euro 2012.

Sannino said: “Andrews is a man and a player who will help us. He is a man with good personality and good character and I believe he is a good addition to the squad.”

Andrews played in the holding role at Clarence Park but was also considered a box-to-box midfielder in the past.

When Sannino was asked if he planned to play him only as a holding player, the Italian responded: “He is a midfielder who can play in holding or [as a centre midfielder] on the left or right.”

I think this guy might play and Toszer go up and play alongside Abdi.

As a brighton fan I couldn't understand why he wasnt offered a deal with us, he was the best player on the pitch by a mile on more than one occasion! Does sometimes look a bit casual but youve got a good player!

I was very impressed by him on Sat v St Albans.
Although the opposition will be much tougher in the Ch'ship I think he will do well, very composed on the ball, finding spaces and a good passer. Tackling? - don't know yet, not much physical involvement on Sat. - too hot?!
Could well be the answer to our DM position, leaving Toszer to play upfield a bit.
