Blackpool have signed Chelsea youngster Islam Feruz on a youth loan until the end of the season.
Feruz, 18, moved to Chelsea from Celtic in 2011 and was part of the Blues’ FA Youth Cup and Barclays U21 Premier League teams.
The Somalia-born striker spent the first part of this season on loan to OFI Crete. Provided the paperwork is completed in time, he could make his debut against Wolves on Saturday.
Blackpool boss Lee Clark told the club’s website: “Islam is a very talented player with the potential to excite the fans. He’ll offer something different to us going forward and I’m pleased that Chelsea have allowed us to complete this deal.”
