Beattie And Kornilenko Delighted With Moves

Beattie And Kornilenko Delighted With Moves

After a hectic transfer deadline day yesterday, the news about the deals that were and weren't done plus people's opinions on our wheeling and dealing are just beginning to sink in.

Meanwhile, two of Blackpool's new signings have said that they are delighted to have joined the club.

Strikers James Beattie and Sergei Kornilenko have both joined the club on loan until the end of the season from Rangers and Zenit St. Petersburg respectively.

Beattie could just well be the target man we've been lacking, and he spoke to the official BFC website about his delight at returning to the Premier League:

'I'm delighted to be here, and I'm delighted to be back in the Premiership.

'It had a lot to do with the manager and what he was saying to me and what he wanted me to do at the club.

'I'm ready to play, if the gaffer wants to throw me in... I've maybe not played the games I'd have wanted to but I've kept myself in good shape.

'I'll be working very hard to get my place and when I do get a chance it'll be up to me to keep it.

'Hopefully I can show the lads what I'm capable of and then chip in with some goals that will keep us in this division.'

Meanwhile, Sergei Kornilenko is somewhat of an unknown quantity and it may be some time before we see him in tangerine as he looks to build up his fitness and get used to our system.

Nevertheless, his agent says he's delighted to have got the opportunity to sign for Blackpool:

'Sergei has long dreamed of England and finally his dream came true. He will make every effort to do his very best in England.

'Kornilenko went to several clubs, but at Blackpool they showed the most desire to have him in their squad. Sergei has already had a meeting with the coach [Ian Holloway], who painted out his plans and where Sergei would be in them.'

Kornilenko was signed just minutes before last night's 11pm deadline, but it is believed that he will not conclude the Seasiders' wheeling and dealing this season; several players are expected to head out on loan, whilst 'Pool are being heavily linked with a move for Scottish midfielder Michael Stewart who is currently a free agent.

Nevertheless, 'Pool manager Ian Holloway is very happy with the business conducted by the club yesterday and attention now turns to tomorrow night's six pointer against West Ham.
