Blackpool have signed former England Under-21 forward Nathan Delfouneso on a six-month loan deal from Aston Villa.

The pacey frontman spent the majority of last season at Bloomfield Road, scoring seven goals in 40 games for Paul Ince's side. 

Ince has been in the market for a striker, and Delfouneso joins ex-Charlton man Ricardo Fuller in bolstering their attacking strength.

Following a promising start to his Aston Villa career, Delfouneso has failed to break into the first team at Villa Park, and has subsequently been loaned out to Burnley, Leicester and most recently Blackpool since 2011. 

His most prolific spell came last term at Blackpool, and he will be hoping to catch Paul Lambert's eye during his next stint. 

He is available for the Tangerines' fixture against Middlesborough on Saturday, where they will be hoping to maintain their perfect start.
