Sky Bet Championship: Blackpool add Andre Blackman and Formose Mency to their squad

Blackpool have brought in two much-needed reinforcements with the capture of Andre Blackman and Formose Mendy on free transfers.

Winger or left-back Blackman spent time with Arsenal and Tottenham as a youngster and has played for AFC Wimbledon and Celtic at senior level.

"I have to work hard now and show the manager I'm ready to play a part at Blackpool," said the 23-year-old, who has been on trial with the Seasiders.

"I've been lucky to have had a good schooling of football from when I was young, so I'd like to bring that here."

Guinea-Bissau international Mendy, 25, has represented the likes of Puertollano and Sporting Gijon in Spain and has also signed on until the end of the season.
