Chelsea Forward Joins Seasiders

Chelsea forward Islam Feruz has joined Blackpool on a youth loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old, who represented Scotland at various youth levels, moved to Stamford Bridge from Celtic in 2011 and has been part of successful FA Youth Cup and Barclays Under-21 Premier League sides.

Somalia-born, Feruz spent the first part of this season on loan to OFI Crete in Greece. Subject to Premier League clearance being received in time, he will be eligible to make his Blackpool debut against Wolves tomorrow.

“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," manager Lee Clark said.
