Blackpool swoop on quartet

PREMIER League newboys Blackpool have completed the signing of four new players.

Manager Ian Holloway has encountered frustration in his efforts to bring in fresh faces due to the clubs rigid wage and transfer structure.

But now he has finally added to his squad, securing deals for Craig Cathcart, Ludovic Sylvestre, Elliot Grandin and Malaury Martin.

Cathcart arrives from Manchester United, where he made no first team appearances, on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Former Barcelona youngster Ludovic Sylvestre has moved from Czech Republic side Mlada Boleslav, the midfielder accepting a two-year deal with the option of a third, again for an undisclosed fee.
