Loan Deal Agreed For James Husband

Defender Arrives From Norwich City

26 July 2019

A deal has been agreed with Norwich City to sign James Husband on loan for the season.

The left-sided defender, 25, has racked up more than 160 senior games in his career to date, playing for the likes of Doncaster Rovers, Middlesbrough, Fulham and Huddersfield Town.

Born in Leeds, he moved to Norwich for an undisclosed fee in 2017 and has since made 21 first-team appearances for the Canaries.

Last season he featured 35 times on loan at Fleetwood Town and faced Blackpool on two occasions.

On joining the club, James Husband said:

“I’m delighted. It’s been a long pre-season for me and when I heard of the interest from Blackpool, I literally couldn’t wait to get in the car and come over here. I had a few conversations with the manager about the ambitions of the new owner and everything like that and the place is starting to look better and better each day.”

Manager Simon Grayson added:

“James has good experience at Championship level and is another important piece of the jigsaw for us. There was a fair bit of interest from clubs looking to sign him and we’re delighted that we’ve been able to bring him to Blackpool.”
