Skysports.com understands that former Watford midfielder Al Bangura is poised to join Blackpool.
The 21-year-old, who spent time on loan at Brighton last season, left Vicarage Road by mutual consent earlier in the summer.
He remains unattached but has been training with Blackpool and is set to sign a deal in the very near future.
It is thought a contract could be sorted in time for Bangura to be available for the game against Cardiff on Saturday.
The Seasiders started their Championship campaign with a 1-1 draw against Queens Park Rangers last weekend before progressing past Crewe in the Carling Cup in midweek.
