Ludovic Sylvestre: Left Blackpool to join Rizespor

Sylvestre turned down a new deal at Blackpool this summer after seeing his contract expire at the end of last season.

A number of English clubs are thought to have expressed an interest in signing Sylvestre, but the 29-year-old has opted to move to Turkey.

Sylvestre has signed a three-year deal at Rizespor after passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

News of Sylvestre's departure is a blow for Blackpool boss Paul Ince as the former Barcelona man had established himself as a key player in his side.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
