Elliot Embleton has signed a new deal with SAFC until June 2022 but has also been loaned out to League One Blackpool until the end of the season!

Sporting Director Kristjaan Speakman explained: “Elliot requires a little more opportunity than we can provide at this moment and it’s an important period for him following the time he missed through injury. We have a clear plan for his progression and felt that under Neil, Blackpool was a great chance for him to gain more experience at this level in a different environment. We’ve taken the option on his contract for next season and we are all aligned on what he needs to do in the period leading up to the summer. He’s really excited about the challenge and we look forward to supporting him from afar.”
