Blackpool have come to a mutual agreement with Estonian striker Sergei Zenjov to release him from his contract at Bloomfield Road.

The 25-yea-old Estonian had already been placed on the loan list by manager Lee Clark as Clark is bringing in a lot of his own signings meaning Zenjov dropped further down the pecking order at Blackpool.

With Clark bringing in a lot of English based players Zenjov did not have a look in beyond the likes of Nile Ranger, Ishmael Miller and Steven Davies.

Out of favour

Zenjov managed to make nine appearances for the Seasiders but his last appearance came in the 3-1 loss to Norwich back in September.

Zenjov was Jose Riga's first signing for the club when Blackpool were struggling to even field a 5-a-side team and it has since come out he was one of Blackpool's main targets, which has surprised many Pool fans.

Riga employed Zenjov mainly as a substitute and would he join the attack as winger not his natural central position.

Lacklustre displays

Zenjov failed to score for Blackpool and failed to capture the fans hearts with lacklustre performances which have contributed to Blackpool's worst start to a season.

Blackpool fans were not convinced he had the quality to pull on the Tangerine shirt having only scored 21 goals in 137 appearances for Karpaty Lviv in the Ukrainian Premier League.


However, the club have released a statement thanking Sergei for his time at Blackpool.

It reads: "The club would like to thank Sergei for his efforts during his time at Bloomfield Road and wish him all the very best with his future footballing endeavours".

Clark continues the player roundabout at Blackpool with this release and expect a few more faces to leave, whether it be loaned out or released from the club, before the window opens again in January.
