Algerian forward Adda Djeziri has revealed that he is set to sign for Blackpool.

The Danish-born 24-year-old spent time with Rangers, Leicester and Portsmouth earlier in his career without playing a game.

He moved back to Scandinavia in 2008 and, after spells with Hjorring, Vejle, Koge and Viborg, he is now a free agent.

He spent time on trial at Bloomfield Road earlier this summer, and he has seemingly done enough to earn a move.

"I will be signing with them. We have been in negotiations for two weeks now and this is a very exciting opportunity for me," Djeziri told bold.dk.

"It all happened at random. The manager had heard of me before and asked me in for a trial. I've played some training matches, scored some goals and created some assists. They have been excited about my performance so that is awesome.

"The competition for places is very tough at Blackpool, that I know. But with all due respect for Viborg this is a step up for my career."

Djeziri is set to pen a one-year deal with an option for another 12 months.
