Seasiders Bring In Rocky Bushiri

Belgium Under-21 International Arrives On Loan

1 August 2019

Belgium under-21 international Rocky Bushiri has joined Blackpool on loan from Norwich City for the season.

The defender, who signed a four-year-deal with the Canaries this summer, moved to Carrow Road from Belgian First Division A side K.V. Oostende.

Last season he made 33 appearances on loan at K.A.S. Eupen and has recently been away at the UEFA European Under-21 Championship.

On signing, Rocky Bushiri said:   

“I’m happy to be here because it’s a club with ambitions to grow with a new manager. I’ve never played in England and I want to get experience by coming here on loan. I’ve been training for five weeks with Norwich and I feel ready to play.”

Manager Simon Grayson added:

“We’re delighted to bring Rocky in on loan. I was made aware of his availability by a contact at Norwich and his arrival will strengthen competition in the defensive line. He’s a strong, athletic defender who has played numerous times in the Belgian First Division and represented his country at under-21 level.”
