Blackpool have signed Apostolos Vellios on loan from Everton.

The 22-year Greek striker has joined the Seasiders for the remainder of the season after failing to gain much game time at Goodison Park.

Vellios, who arrived on Merseyside from Iraklis in 2011, has not appeared in Everton's senior side this season with his last match coming in January 2013.

The Greece U21 international will go straight into Barry Ferguson's squad for this weekend's Championship meeting with QPR.
