Blackpool FC have signed striker François Zoko on a one-year-deal with the option of a further 12 months.

The 30-year-old from the Ivory Coast has spent the past four years in the Football League, the first two with Carlisle before joining Notts County. He joined Stevenage last October and was released at the end of the season.

Zoko, who started his career in France and had stints in Holland and Turkey before arriving on these shores, has scored 42 goals in 167 Football League appearances.

He has signed for Pool following a successful trial and has been granted the no.13 shirt.

“It is a good step for me to play Championship football and improve again,” he said
