John-Jules: It Was A No-Brainer To Come Here

New signing Tyreece John-Jules has explained how pleased he is to be at Bloomfield Road and to be playing in the Sky Bet Championship this coming season.

The 20-year-old joined the Club on a season-long-loan deal from Arsenal on Thursday, and after enjoying successful loan spells with Lincoln and Doncaster Rovers in League One over the past couple of seasons, the 20-year-old is looking forward to testing himself at the next level.

"I'm delighted to be here and can't wait to get started," he said.

"It was a no-brainer for me to come here. I've enjoyed a good few loan spells in League One, but I now want to challenge myself even further, and there's no better place to do that than at Blackpool. 

"After speaking to the gaffer, I felt very comfortable and felt like it was the right place for me. As a young player, you want to know the Head Coach believes in you and wants you to be a part of the team, and he certainly did that."

As well as speaking to Neil Critchley before joining the Seasiders, John-Jules admitted he also discussed the move with former Pool man Daniel Ballard and current left-back Reece James.

"I know Daniel well through the Arsenal Academy. I spoke to him before the move here and he had nothing but positive things to say about the place.

"I also spoke to Reece James, who I was with at Doncaster last year, and he said what a great group it is here, so they both made it an even easier decision to come here,

"I'm really looking forward to the season, and can't wait to get started."
