Kingson finally joining Blackpool this week

Richard Kingson is expected to join Blackpool this week.

The Ghana stopper has been waiting for his work permit but the matter is close to being resolved.

The 32-year-old's absence for the Chelsea game cost him a reunion with one of his best mates in football - Michael Essien.

The Chelsea star, a fellow Ghana international, said: "Richard is a very good friend, like he's my big brother.

"Over the years he has been giving me advice and always talking to me. Richard is just a very nice man, so I'm happy for him to be in England with a new club."

Kingson previously played for Birmingham and Wigan but failed to nail down a place.
