Duo Agree Bloomfield Road Deals
Blackpool have completed the double signing of David Ferguson and Connor Oliver on 18-month deals from Sunderland.
Having been on trial with The Seasiders prior to Christmas, the pair have agreed contracts with the option of a further 12 months.
Ferguson, a 20-year-old defender, spent time on loan at Darlington in 2012 and has progressed through his youth system at the Stadium of Light.
Oliver, 20, came through the same system, and the midfielder made three appearances on loan at Hartlepool United last season.
Ferguson said: “It's a move that I really wanted to happen so hopefully I can hit the ground running. I came here for a week in November and everyone was welcoming, it was a good environment to be in.”
Oliver added: “I've been at Sunderland six years and it was a good experience, but I wanted to come out and get some first team games. It's a good opportunity for me, so I've got to take it with both hands.”
The two deals are subject to Premier League clearance.
