Exeter City have added another midfielder to their squad by signing Brighton Hove Albion's Anton Rodgers on loan until the end of the season.

Anton Rodgers, 20, son of Liverpool manager Brendan, started his career at the youth academy in Chelsea but has yet to make a starting appearance in the Championship for Brighton this season.

He was also one of four footballers who were charged with sexual assault and voyeurism after it was alleged they assaulted a 19-year-old woman in a Brighton hotel room in July 2011.

Anton Rodgers pleaded not guilty to the charge, but when the case went before the Old Bailey in February, 2013, the Jury failed to reach a verdict meaning the player could face a retrial.

Anton Rodgers is the second recent signing Paul Tisdale has made, with Reading midfielder Lawson D'Ath joining at the end of last week and scoring on his debut in a 4-1 win over Bradford City.
