Virtue Signs New Deal
Blackpool Football Club is pleased to announce that Matty Virtue has signed a further contract extension with the Seasiders.
The midfielder’s current deal expired in June 2022, but his new contract will see the 24-year-old remain at Bloomfield Road until at least June 2023, including an option for a further 12 months.
Having joined the Club in January 2019, Virtue has so far made 64 appearances in all competitions for Blackpool and found the net on eight occasions.
Matty Virtue said:
“I’m really happy and glad to get the deal signed. In extending my deal, it gives me a little bit of extra time to focus on my recovery from the knee injury, and I’m really grateful to the Club for showing that faith in me.
“With me being injured, it could have been quite easy for the Club to cast me aside and focus on the fit players, but they’ve done the total opposite. They’ve continued to help me with my rehab and been really supportive, and I’m fully focused on continuing my recovery and getting back into action as soon as I can.
“I’m pleased to be at this Club for another year and continue on the exciting journey we’re all going on.”
