Everton striker Apostolos Vellios has moved to Sky Bet Championship side Blackpool on loan for the remainder of the season.

The Greek forward, 22, has yet to appear under Roberto Martinez at Goodison Park and the Spaniard has been vocally critical in the past when Vellios has not sought out first-team football on loan.

The penny finally appears to have dropped, though, and Vellios follows in the footsteps of Robert Earnshaw in moving to Bloomfield Road.
