Loan Deal For Bunney Agreed

Left-Back Arrives From Northampton Town

25 June 2018

Joe Bunney is to join Blackpool on a season-long loan deal from Northampton Town.

The left-back, 24, arrives at Bloomfield Road having been a regular in Sky Bet League One for several seasons. 

Bunney made 12 appearances for Northampton last season following a move for an undisclosed fee in the January transfer window, though he is renowned more for his time with Rochdale, where he played just shy of 150 games for the club. 

On the books of Lancaster City as a youngster, Bunney started out his career as a striker but has since flourished as an attacking left-back since 2016. 

He becomes Blackpool's seventh summer arrival ahead of the new season. 

Manager Gary Bowyer said: 

"Joe has good experience at this level, is great going forward and also has good delivery from set-plays. He's shown a real desire to come and join us and we are delighted to have him. Having lost Colin Daniel this summer, Joe's arrival gives us competition in that position."

Joe Bunney added: 

"I'm delighted to be here and I can't wait to get going. It's perfect timing. The lads are back in on Wednesday so we can hit the ground running, hopefully. I'm here to create goals and see how far we can get up the table."
