BLACKPOOL have signed Fulham prodigy Sean Doherty on a month's loan.

Steve McMahon swooped to bring the midfielder to Bloomfield Road on a temporary basis in a bid to increase his selection options.

With a Carling Cup clash with Premiership side Birmingham City on the horizon, the former Liverpool and England star has been busy looking at ways to improve his squad.

Doherty is an 18-year-old with plenty of promise after representing England Schoolboys with some distinction.

The wide man joined The Cottagers from Everton in 2001, and will learn from the experience garnered from the loan stint at the seaside.

Meanwhile, Fulham have extended Mark Hudson's loan stint with Oldham Athletic for another month.
