Chelsea youngster joins Blackpool on loan

Chelsea prospect Islam Feruz has joined Blackpool on loan until the end of the season.

The 19-year-old striker spent the first half of the current campaign at OFI Crete, making one substitute appearance in the Greek top flight.

The former Celtic youngster, who joined the Blues in 2011, will now link up with Lee Clark’s Championship strugglers to continue his development.

Feruz, who has represented Scotland from Under-16 to Under-21 level, was part of Chelsea’s title-winning Under-21 squad last season, and has 10 goals in 13 appearances in the Uefa Youth League.
