The 20-year-old impressed when on loan with Crewe Alexandra last season, playing 18 games and scoring four goals after joining close to the end of the January transfer window.

For the first half of the season the Hartlepool-born attacking midfielder was one of the stand-out performers with our Under-23s and carried on the good work at Gresty Road.

He joins a club who will play a league higher than Crewe after the Seasiders, who finished seventh in League Two, clinched promotion to League One with a 2-1 Play Off final win over Exeter City.
