Blackpool have completed a double loan signing after clinching Crystal Palace goalkeeper Scott Flinders and Tottenham midfielder Joe Martin until the end of the season.
Bloomfield Road boss Simon Grayson has moved quickly to secure the duo ahead of Thursday's loan transfer window deadline.
Former England Under 20 international Flinders will provide competition for first choice shot-stopper Paul Rachubka, but he will not be allowed to make his debut against his parent club on Saturday as Blackpool prepare to travel to Palace.
Flinders, 21, has also spent loan periods with Gillingham, Brighton and Yeovil as he has struggled to secure a permanent place in the Palace firstmteam.
Meanwhile, highly-rated Spurs youngster Martin has also moved to the Championship outfit and he could make his debut against Palace.
The 19-year-old has caught the eye in Spurs' reserve team this season and has also featured for England at Under 16 and Under 17 level.
