Blackpool will look to sign loanees Jak Alnwick and Ben Heneghan on permanent deals in January.

The League One side are eager to get deals done from Rangers and Sheffield United respectively, according to a report by the Blackpool Gazette.

Alnwick, who is 26 years-old, has started every game so far this season for the Tangerines and is out of contract at Rangers at the end of the season.

Heneghan’s contract situation at Bramall Lane is the same, however, his loan deal at Blackpool expires next month.

The Seasiders boss Simon Grayson has said, as per the Blackpool Gazette: “We’re looking at situations with the loan players we have got and we are going to do with them. That is part of the recruitment process of looking at what we have got. Can we turn the loan players potentially into permanent deals?”

“I think people like Ben Heneghan and Jak Alnwick have done fantastically well, so why wouldn’t you want to try and sign them?”

When asked about Alnwick, Grayson said: “It speaks for itself that he has started every game. He is very composed and he makes saves when he needs to, although I am sure we would all prefer Jack not to have too much to do because it means the back three, four or five are protecting him and doing their jobs.”
