blackpool fcBlackpool have been very quiet throughout the close season but have amazed everybody today with five new signings. Blackpool have signed French trio Malaury Martin, Ludovic Sylvestre and Elliot Grandin plus Northern Ireland international Craig Cathcart. Many thought Blackpool were close on signing Rob Hulse from Derby although it was not the Derby player who became their fifth signing of the day.

Marlon Harewood, the former West Ham and Aston Villa striker is Blackpool’s surprise fifth signing which put to an end the speculation regarding Derby’s Rob Hulse. Harewood has signed a two year deal with the club and the 30-year-old is expected to make his Pool debut on Saturday when the Tangerines make their Premiership bow at Wigan Athletic.

Ian Holloway admitted during a BBC interview that he has been frustrated by potential signings wages demands. Holloway also stated that rumours that he had fallen out with the chairman were complete rubbish.
