Blackpool sign Chris Basham from Bolton Wanderers

Utility player Chris Basham has become Blackpool's sixth signing in the space of the past three days.

Basham, 22, joins from Bolton, where he made 19 appearances, and goes straight into the squad to face Wigan.

Wanderers rejected Blackpool's initial bid last Friday but have now agreed terms with the Seasiders.

"He's a player we value, but I had to be fair to him because his chances have been limited here," said Bolton manager Owen Coyle on Thursday.

"Morally, I felt I had to give him the opportunity if he wanted to play week-in week-out."

Basham, who can play in midfield or defence, also had loan spells at Stafford Rangers and Rochdale after coming through Bolton's youth system. He joins Blackpool on a three-year deal.

Blackpool signed striker Marlon Harewood on Wednesday, one of five new arrivals to join the Seasiders on the same day.

Manchester United's Northern Ireland defender Craig Cathcart, 21, joined for an undisclosed fee.

Blackpool also acquired the French trio of ex-Barcelona trainee Ludovic Sylvestre, 26, former Marseille player Elliot Grandin, 22, and Malaury Martin, 21, who was last with Monaco.
