John Lundstram has joined Blackpool on a season long loan.
The Everton midfielder, 20, links up with the Tangerines ahead of their Championship campaign which begins at Nottingham Forest this Saturday.
Lundstram has featured in the Blues’ pre-season friendlies against Tranmere Rovers and Leicester City but has now been afforded the opportunity to gain more experience at Bloomfield Road.
He has previously enjoyed loan spells at Doncaster Rovers, Yeovil Town and Leyton Orient but is yet to make a senior appearance for Everton.
Blackpool and their manager Jose Riga have been feverishly trying to rebuild a decimated squad in time for the beginning of the season.
