Blackpool have completed a double swoop after landing midfielder Jermaine Wright and striker Steve Kabba. Former Ipswich Town and Leeds United midfielder Wright has joined the Seasiders on a free transfer following his release by Southampton last month. Meanwhile, Kabba, 27, has arrived on loan from Championship rivals Watford until January 1. "I left Southampton for whatever reason and when my agent told me Blackpool were interested and I couldn't wait to get up here and talk," Wright told the club's official website after penning a one-year contract. "This is a good challenge for me. I want to be somewhere where I feel wanted and I want to give it my best."
