BLACKPOOL have snapped up Charlton defender Danny Shittu on a month's loan to help sustain their Division Three play-off hopes, as Steve McMahon side continue their push for promotion.

McMahon (pictured) believes he needs the commanding central defender to help secure his back line and having watched Shittu on a number of occasions for The Addicks reserves, has swooped for the player.

Shittu was born in Nigeria but moved to England when he was 12, where he began playing for Carshalton Athletic Youth and started his career at Charlton after writing in for a trial.
