Jacob Mellis has agreed to join Blackpool now meaning they have 9 players contracted to the club according to the Blackpool Gazette.
Mellis, the ex-Chelsea youngster has been training with the club for two weeks and after his successful trials has signed and put pen to paper.
The midfielder completes a one-year deal with the Seasiders much to the delighted fans of Blackpool who have been anxiously waiting for their club to actually complete a signing after a farcical summer. During this summer term it has seen the club’s organised pre-season friendlies have to be cancelled due to the sufficient lack of players for such prolonged periods of time.
See the reactions of the Blackpool fans and Football League fans below with some taking a more sarcastic approach than a relieved one…
