Marko Futacs: Poised to join Blackpool on a one-month loan from Leicester

Futacs made the move to Leicester from Portsmouth last summer, having previously played for Werder Bremen before coming to England in 2011.

He has had limited opportunities to impress at the King Power Stadium this season and Leicester now appear to be ready to loan him out.

It is thought that a one-month deal has been agreed to take the 23-year-old to Blackpool, where he will hope to play more regularly.

Blackpool are currently 16th in the Championship table after failing to score in four successive games, and Paul Ince will be happy to bolster his attacking options if a move for Futacs can be finalised.

"I was happy to hear the news that I can work with Paul Ince. I'm sure I can learn a lot from him even during this short period," Futacs said in a press release in his native Hungary.

"It's a habit in England to sign a player for a short period and it's a bit strange because you don't have time for adapting and you must perform well immediately.

"I'll be on the bench on Tuesday. I hope I'll start on Saturday in Watford. Blackpool are not in a good shape, actually they signed me to score goals.

"I hope for a successful month. If I can play well then Leicester would wait for my comeback and maybe I could get more chances from the manager."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
