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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
