Marko Futacs has joined Championship side Blackpool on a one month loan from Leicester City.

The 23-year-old, 6ft 5ins striker made his debut for the Tangerines against Birmingham City last night.

Futacs joined big spending Leicester City on a free transfer last summer after he was released by struggling Portsmouth. He has scored two goals in twelve appearances for the Foxes.

Reduced to appearances from the bench, Futacs’ fell further down the Leicester City pecking order with the signings of Chris Wood and loanee Harry Kane.

Blackpool gaffer Paul Ince was eager to add the striker to his squad after Blackpool failed to score in his first three games in charge.

Futacs is Ince’s second signing, after Gary Mackenzie joined the Tangerines from MK Dons last week.

Futacs spent his youth at AS Nancy before moving to Werder Bremen II and beginning his professional career.

Making his first team debut at 19-years-old he scored three goals in 13 appearances for Bremen II before an unsuccessful loan spell at Ingolstadt 04.

Catching the eye of Portsmouth, Futacs made his way to the nPower Championship on a one year deal.His first league goal came in December 2011 when he gave Portsmouth the lead against his current employers Leicester City in a 1-1 draw. 

He went on to score five goals in 29 appearances for Pompy but was released in July 2012 after financial troubles forced an over hall of the south coast team’s staff.

He signed for Leicester City in the same month and has now been loaned to Blackpool.
