Vassell Signs Up

Striker Agrees Blackpool Deal

Kyle Vassell has put pen-to-paper on a one-year deal at Blackpool, with the option of a further year.

The striker, 23, will link up with the club once his contract at Peterborough United expires and becomes Gary Bowyer's second addition as manager.

A renowned goalscorer in the Conference South, Vassell joined Peterborough United from Bishop's Stortford for an undisclosed fee in November 2013 and found the net on six occasions, with five of them coming in the 2014/15 campaign. 

He spent last season on loan with Dagenham and Redbridge and Shrewsbury Town, facing Blackpool with the latter in February.

"With how football has gone for me in the last couple of years, this is probably the most important decision I've made in football. I'm delighted to be here," Vassell said.

"I spoke to the manager about how he saw me and how he wanted me to fit into his team and I loved what he had to say. It wasn't a hard decision for me. I want to come here, play well, win games, get promoted and score goals."

Determined to bring out the best in Vassell, manager Gary Bowyer is looking forward to working with his latest recruit.

"Kyle has some real power behind him and a great desire to succeed," Bowyer said. "He offers us a different option in attack and we'll be working hard on the training ground to bring out the best in his performances."
