The striker last played for the Seasiders in September 2020 and wasn’t even registered in the club’s 25-man squad this season.

Nuttall, an August 2019 signing from Blackburn Rovers for what was believed to be a hefty fee, scored just four goals in 34 appearances for the club.

“The club would like to thank Joe for his efforts and wish him the best of luck for the future,” the club said in a statement.

Nuttall becomes the latest player to depart Bloomfield Road this month, following in the footsteps of Daniel Gretarsson, Teddy Howe, Demetri Mitchell and Oliver Sarkic who have also left permanently.
