BLACKPOOL have finally landed the striker they’ve so badly craved.

Reports in the East Midlands had suggested Leicester striker Marko Futacs could be on his way to Bloomfield Road, that has now been confirmed and he has signed on a month long loan.

The 22-year-old certainly fits the bill – he’s 6’5 tall and is believed to relish the physical side of the game.

Pool boss Paul Ince has made no secret of his desire for a target man and the Hungarian could fill that gap.

He’s scored one goal in nine appearances for the Foxes this season, since joining from Portsmouth in the summer.

With competition tough at Leicester, the striker has found it hard to break into the starting 11.
