Tom Barkhuizen has completed a one month loan deal to League Two club Morecambe.
Barkhuizen made his first team debut for Blackpool in the 2010-2011 season against MK Dons in the League Cup but has only managed 19 appearances over the past four years for the men in tangerine.
Morecambe hoping for an instant impact
Barkhuizen, however, has had two successful loan spells during his time at Blackpool one for Hereford where he managed 11 goals and also for Fleetwood respectively.
When Barkhuizen played for these two sides they were also in League Two so Morecambe fans will hope that his experience at this level will help them.
Morecambe's manager Jim Bentley told the club's website, "He is someone with pace who has an eye for goal and I am sure he will be a good addition to our squad."
It has come as a surprise to many Blackpool fans that Barkhuizen has been loaned out as he impressed last season with sublime finish against Bolton in the FA Cup and also slotted home against Reading as if he was still playing at junior level.
However, due to several injuries last season Blackpool did not see as much as they would have liked of the 21-year-old.
These appearances, however, came under Paul Ince not current manager Jose Riga who is yet to employ the Blackpool born lad despite injury concerns all over the pitch.
Blackpool fans will hope that Barkhuizen does return for the Seasiders as he does have great potential, raw pace and the composure to finish neatly. They will be hoping that this loan move is so that he can gain match fitness and then fire in goals left, right and centre.
