The attacker has been AWOL from Bloomfield Road since November, with the Tangerines finishing bottom of the Championship.
The former Newcastle United striker signed a one-year deal at Bloomfield Road after being released by Swindon last May, but the 24-year-old has been barely involved this season as Blackpool were relegated to League One.

Ranger hasn't played for the Tangerines since November, having returned to London due to 'family problems' and has been financially punished for being away from the club since then.
But the Seasiders have decided to activate an automatic one-year extension to his deal, and will now be looking to the attacker to help towards a return to the Championship next season.
Quite how the 'Pool fans will take to the prospect of seeing Ranger turning out for them next year remains to be seen, but then again, given how available he's been this season, they might ask if it's yet another questionable decision by those in charge of the club. His career has been full of personal and legal issues at each of his former clubs, leading to contract terminations - but at Blackpool, the opposite has happened.
The Tangerines board have been beset with supporter protests at Karl Oyston's running of the club in recent weeks, and Ranger's contract renewal is just another bizarre occurrence to have come this season.
