Blackpool clinch Wilcox loan deal
Jason Wilcox
Wilcox was part of Blackburn's title-winning side in 1994/1995
Blackpool have captured Leicester City winger Jason Wilcox on loan.

The former England international, 34, has moved to Bloomfield Road for a month after dropping out of the first-team picture at Leicester.

Wilcox is an ex-Blackburn team-mate of Seasiders caretaker-manager Simon Grayson and also had a spell at Leeds before joining Leicester in 2004.

Meanwhile, Blackpool have also signed Wolves winger Lewis Gobern, 20, on loan until 2 January.

Gobern has made just one first-team appearance for the Molineux club, but had a brief loan spell at Hartlepool last season.

In addition, the Seasiders are set to extend the loan of Leeds player Ian Morris, 18, for a third month.

  • A meeting between Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston and Colin Hendry took place on Thursday - but without reaching a conclusion, reports BBC Radio Lancashire.

    It means - nominally at least - that Hendry is still the Seasiders' manager, although he is no longer in charge of first team affairs.

    Coach Simon Grayson was placed in charge of the team a fortnight ago.
