Young Gunner joins Blackpool

17 Aug 2009 - 16:08:37

Blackpool have signed young midfielder Jay Emmanuel-Thomas on loan from Arsenal.

The 18-year-old moves to the Seasiders on a one-month agreement to bolster Ian Holloway's options in the middle of the park at Bloomfield Road.

Emmanuel-Thomas captained Arsenal's Under-18 side to FA Youth Cup and Academy League successes last season, his first as a professional.

Emmanuel-Thomas has also represented the Gunners' reserves, where he has covered at left-back, centre-forward as well as figuring in his preferred central midfield role.

"I am delighted, we have had a few things boiling over on the stove in the last few weeks and to get what we have got is pleasing," Holloway told the club's official website.

"I am delighted to have Jay, he is a fantastic young lad, he has a great physique and he wants the chance to come out and play."
