Blackpool have signed Leicester striker Jacob Blyth on loan for the rest of the season.

The 23-year-old arrives at Bloomfield Road following a loan spell at Cambridge United earlier in the season.

Blyth joined the Premier League leaders in 2012 from Leamington FC for an undisclosed fee but has failed to play for their first team.

He’s spent much of this season playing for the club’s under 21 side, although he spent much of last season on loan at Burton Albion in League Two.

The striker trained with his new team-mates this morning and could be in line to make his Blackpool debut against Bury on Good Friday.
