Derby Man Makes Permanent Move To Blackpool

27 August 2019

Calum Macdonald has completed a permanent move to Blackpool from Championship side Derby County.

The left-back, 21, joins the club on an initial two-year deal, plus 12-month option, and has been allocated the number 29 shirt at Bloomfield Road.

An ever present in Premier League 2 with Derby’s Under-23 side, Macdonald has been named on the Rams’ first-team bench on a number of occasions and has also represented Scotland at under-21 level.

Voted the Under-23s’ Player of the Season in 2016-17, he spent a period on loan with Barrow in 2017-18, making 21 appearances in the National League.

On joining Blackpool, Calum Macdonald said:

“I’m very, very excited. We agreed that it was time for me to move on and try and establish myself in the game. When Blackpool came in, a massive club, it was something that didn’t really take much thinking about. The team’s flying and I can’t wait to be part of it.”

Manager Simon Grayson added: 

"Calum is a player that we've been aware of for some time. He offers versatility down the left-hand side and is at a good age where he will develop. He's another good addition who adds competition for places."
