World Cup Midfielder To Join, Subject To Work Permit

Costa Rica international José Miguel Cubero has agreed to join Blackpool from Herediano for an undisclosed fee, subject to a work permit being granted.  

The 27-year-old midfielder, who featured for his country at the World Cup in Brazil, has agreed a one-year deal with an option for a further year.

He arrived in England yesterday for a look around Bloomfield Road and went through a medical this afternoon, with the club now awaiting the results. 

A holding midfielder with 39 caps for the national team, Cubero has spent his career to date with Herediano, barring a brief loan spell with Puntarenas in 2009.

"I am very happy to sign for Blackpool, it is a dream come true. It is a very nice stadium and it's my first chance to play abroad. It has always been a dream to play in England and grow as a footballer, so it's a great opportunity," Cubero said.

He has been allocated the number 22 shirt at Blackpool.
