Blackpool have signed a sixth player with the capture of Chris Basham from Bolton for an undisclosed fee. The 22-year-old midfielder has signed a three-year deal, with the option of a further 12 months.
Basham's arrival follows those of Craig Cathcart, Marlon Harewood and French trio Elliot Grandin, Malaury Martin and Ludovic Sylvestre into the club this week as Ian Holloway strengthens for the coming top flight campaign.
He has gone straight into the squad for the Seasiders' opening Premier League clash at Wigan on Saturday. Bolton boss Owen Coyle told the club's official website: "Chris is a great lad but unfortunately there is plenty of competition here in the position that he plays.
"As a young, enthusiastic player making his way in the game then it wouldn't have been fair for us to keep him as he wouldn't have got as many chances to play as he would have liked.
"I wish him nothing but good luck at Blackpool because it is a fantastic opportunity for him to play in the Premier League."
