Blackpool have agreed a deal to sign non-league star Yusifu Ceesay after he impressed on trial in pre-season, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Ceesay, who is plying his trade at Evo-Stik Southern Central division side Alvechurch, enjoyed a spell on trial at Blackpool earlier this summer and he caught the eye during his stint at Bloomfield Road.


The 23-year-old featured in the pre-season friendly with Nantwich and created a goal for Blackpool in the game.

The skilful attacker impressed for Alvechurch last season, helping them win promotion from the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division One South.

Blackpool have continued to keep tabs on Ceesay and they have now offered him a deal to move into the professional ranks.

Ceesay is set to sign a two-year deal with the option of a further 12 months with Blackpool and he is set to go straight into the first-team squad.


Blackpool are currently without a manager with interim boss Terry McPhillips currently in charge following the departure of Gary Bowyer just one game into the new season.

Blackpool are currently in 11th spot in League One after picking up seven points from their opening six games.
