Blackpool are poised to sign winger Yusifu Ceesay from Alvechurch following a successful trial with the club.
The 23-year old has been on trial with the Tangerines during pre-season, impressing in a 2-1 friendly win at Nantwich Town.
HITC Sport has reported Ceesay is poised to pen a two-year contract at Bloomfield Road, with the option of a further 12 months. ,
It is thought the pacey forward will be loaned out for first team experience, with the National League a likely destination as they are not affected by the transfer window.
The Democratic Republic of Congo-born forward impressed for Alvechurch last season, helping them win promotion from the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division One South.
Ceesay can operate out wide or up front, and has previously impressed for Sporting Khalsa FC.
There’s conflicting reports, HITC think he’s going straight into the first team, but the Blackpool Gazette have him down as a loan player.
Wherever he goes, his story is a good one. He’s put in the hard yards in the non-league scene and is finally getting a reward. Good luck to him.
