Newcastle allow youngster Smith loan move to Blackpool

League One Blackpool have signed 20 year old midfielder Liam Smith on loan from Newcastle until the end of the season.

"He's a ball-playing midfielder with a good range of passing and I'm looking forward to working with him," Blackpool boss Neil McDonald told the club's official website.

"I've seen him on a couple of occasions and I've been impressed with what he can do.

"I just think we need a little bit more variety and Liam can certainly handle the ball in tight situations and has got a good range of passing.

"Hopefully he complements the other midfield players that we've got and forces his way into the team."
