As revealed by The Gazette, the deal was originally due to be announced on Monday when the 22-year-old attended Bloomfield Road to finalise his deal.

However there was a delay in receiving final confirmation from the Ibrox club, but these formalities have now been ironed out and Dodoo has been unveiled as a Blackpool player.

Dodoo becomes the Seasiders’ fourth signing of the summer, with Pool having already confirmed the permanent signings of Michael Nottingham and Harry Pritchard from non-league and free agent John O'Sullivan.

The forward has managed only 27 appearances in two seasons with the Glasgow club, having moved north from Leicester City.

He still has two seasons left on his Ibrox contract but Rangers are looking to offload players to fund new boss Steven Gerrard’s spending plans.

The attacker has League One experience from a short stint at Bury in 2015 and a longer loan spell at Charlton Athletic last season, when he scored twice in eight games.

Dodoo, who may not be the only arrival at Bloomfield Road today, was born in Ghana but has won an England Under-18 cap.

The deal remains subject to international clearance being received.
