Highly-rated Newcastle United youngster Sean Longstaff is to join Blackpool on loan until 6 January 2018.
The midfielder, 19, has been a key component in Peter Beardsley’s under-23 side and spent the second half of last season on loan to Kilmarnock in the SPL, scoring three goals in 17 appearances.
“Sean is another exciting addition to the squad and I’m delighted that Newcastle United have allowed him to further his development with us,” manager Gary Bowyer said.
“He’s someone who made a big impression with Kilmarnock up in Scotland last season and highlighted his capabilities once again in a pre-season run-out at Darlington the other night.
“He’s very good on the ball and I’m sure he’ll contribute his fair share of goals and assists.”
