Blackpool have signed Morecambe’s Jack Redshaw in a deal worth £180,000.

As revealed in The Gazette last week, the 24-year-old has been in talks with the Seasiders after a failed bid of £150,000 two weeks ago.

Having progressed through the Manchester City academy, Redshaw previously turned out for the likes of Rochdale and Altrincham, before finding his feet at the Globe Arena.

He’s signed a two-year deal at Blackpool and says Neil McDonald played a big part in his decision to sign.

“I like the way the gaffer is trying to build the club and wants it moving in the right direction,” he said.

“I think the time is right to step up into League One, I’m confident in my own ability and want to be successful with Blackpool.

“I’m a striker and I’m here to score goals, that’s what I want to do here at Blackpool.”

Redshaw quickly established himself as Morecambe’s prize asset after his move from Altrincham in January 2012.

He rejected a move to Peterborough in August 2014 and went on to score 12 goals for the Shrimps last season.

He added: “I was at Morecambe for three and a half years and I loved the place.

“I don’t have a bad word to say about the place but this was the right time to leave.”

Redshaw is expected to make his debut in tomorrow’s game against Lancaster.
