Manchester United defender Tyler Blackett has signed with Blackpool on-loan.

The versatile full-back will link up with the fourth-placed Seasiders, initially until 2 December, in his first temporary switch away from Old Trafford.

A regular member of Warren Joyce's Reserves and Under-21 squad, Blackett has been appearing in a more advanced position of late and claimed some valuable assists for the team with his powerful play down the left flank.

Blackpool are managed by ex-United midfielder Paul Ince and have former defender Craig Cathcart in their ranks.
