The 22-year-old had made 12 appearances for the Victoria Road club since joining from the Withdean, but an injury crisis on the south coast has seen Seagulls manager Russell Slade call Loft back.

Despite his return, Daggers manager John Still didn't rule out signing the midfielder permanently when his contract runs out in the summer.

"We would be interested in him for next season, but at the moment I couldn't say anything for definite, so he has to decide what is in his best interests," said the boss.
