Joe Dodoo seals loan switch to Blackpool from Rangers


Joe Dodoo has completed a season-long loan switch from Rangers to Blackpool.

The Sky Bet League One side are keen to strengthen their attacking options ahead of next season and agreed a deal to bring the 22-year-old to Bloomfield Road last week.

Dodoo joined Rangers from then-Premier League champions Leicester in 2016 and went on to score five goals in 27 matches.

He spent part of last season on loan at Charlton, scoring two goals in eight appearances for the League One club.

Dodoo, who has two years remaining on his contract at Ibrox, becomes Blackpool boss Gary Bowyer’s third signing of the summer following the arrivals of defender Michael Nottingham and midfielder Harry Pritchard.

Bowyer told the club’s website: “Joe is a fantastic signing for us and I would like to thank Rangers for allowing him to join for the season. He can play in a variety of positions across the front line and adds pace, power and goals to the side. We’re really excited to work with him.”

Dodoo added: “I’m delighted to be here. I spoke to the manager and he told me what he’s trying to achieve this season and I like the sound of it. It’s a good club and I can’t wait to get started and playing.”
