Ryan Allsop has joined Blackpool on a season-long loan deal from Premier League side AFC Bournemouth.
The goalkeeper, 25, becomes the club’s eighth signing of the summer and will compete with fellow new arrival Ben Williams for a regular place between the sticks.
Allsop, who made his Premier League debut for The Cherries against Everton in November 2015, has previously spent time out on loan with Coventry City and Wycombe Wanderers.
“It’s a great club and I know the goalkeeping coach very well, so I look forward to working with him. I want to come here and play as many games as possible and push on with my career,” said Allsop, who has made 27 appearances for Bournemouth to date.
“I can get settled here now and fully concentrate on my football and progressing myself, and hopefully this club as well.”
Manager Gary Bowyer, who continues to work on further deals, added:
“I’d like to thank Eddie Howe and Bournemouth for allowing us to bring Ryan to the club. He’s a very good goalkeeper and someone that Dave Timmins has coached before.
“His arrival strengthens our goalkeeping department and provides stern competition for a place in the team.”
