STEPHEN Dobbie has become the Seasiders’ big deadline day transfer signing.

The striker who helped fire Pool to the Premier League two years ago, and did the same with Swansea last season, has signed on loan until the end of the season.

Dobbie, 29, has fallen out of favour at the Swans and is keen to get some first team football under his belt.

And has jumped at the chance to return to the club where he scored five goals and won promotion, and be able to play in the key role between the midfield and attack.

Dobbie, who has been allocated the number seven shirt, is expected to go straight into Ian Holloway’s squad for Saturday’s trip to Reading.
