Nathan Delfouneso: Striker back with Blackpool

The 23-year-old has had two previous spells on loan at Bloomfield Road and he is now set to put pen to paper on a one-year contract – with the option of a further year – subject to a medical.

Delfouneso, who has also had loan spells with Burnley, Leicester and Coventry, was a free agent after being released by Aston Villa at the end of last season.

The former England U21 international scored seven goals for the Seasiders two seasons ago and also featured for the club last term.

He has been on trial with Blackpool for several weeks and scored twice in the 4-0 friendly victory at Penrith. 

Delfouneso's official arrival brings the total number of players on the club's books to 12 following the signings of Jacob Mellis, Tomasz Cywka and Peter Clarke on Monday.

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.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
