"It's great to get the deal sorted for the rest of the season," manager Gary Bowyer said.

"Viv has already made some good progress in his time with us so far, and he now needs to kick on and add more goals and assists to his game in the second half of the season."

As revealed by The Gazette earlier this month, the club are also in talks with Sean Longstaff's parent club Newcastle United to extend the midfielder's loan deal at Bloomfield Road.
