Paul Ince: Blackpool striker Adda Djeziri is hoping to impress the new boss

The Danish-born attacker has struggled to establish himself since arriving at Bloomfield Road last summer.

Djeziri, who stands at a towering 6ft 6in, did make four appearances during a loan spell at Scunthorpe in December, but he has told Sky Sports that the arrival of Ince could help his quest for first-team action.

"We have a fantastic set of players here at Blackpool and based on that I do believe that we should be competing for promotion this year," he said.

"The league is extremely competitive though and on their day anybody can beat anybody, so it is a case of taking it on game-by-game basis.

"There are a lot of good players, so competition for places was always going to be tough, but I learned a lot during my time at Scunthorpe.

"It was a good experience that helped me adjust to English football

"League One football is very fast and direct, so it was a great way to test myself at this level and see what I needed to work on to play my own game here."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
