Yesterday evening Blackpool confirmed the arrival of young Chelsea striker Islam Feruz on a loan deal.

The 19 year old has joined us on a deal until the end of the season and he has represented Scotland at various age levels.

He joined Chelsea from Celtic back in 2011 and has been part of their successful FA Youth Cup side and their under 21 Development squad.

This season he spent the first half of the campaign out with OFI Crete in Greece, and he is in line to make his debut in today’s game against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Manager Lee Clark said of the capture.

‘Islam is a very talented player with the potential to excite the fans. He’ll offer something different to us going forward and I’m pleased that Chelsea have allowed us to complete this deal.’
