Blackpool have signed goalkeeper Joe Lewis on a season-long loan deal from Cardiff City.

The 26-year-old, who made just three appearances for the Bluebirds last season, will be eligible to make his debut for the club against Nottingham Forest on Saturday, subject to international clearance.

The switch includes an option for the Tangerines to make the deal permanent but the former Peterborough man will be unable to line up against Cardiff this season.

"I was sat at Cardiff for the last two seasons behind David Marshall, who has done outstanding," he told Blackpool's official website.

"I've had to make do with a couple of cup games and the odd league game here and there, and it was pretty frustrating really. I knew that I had to get out and play some regular football," he said.

"It's great to come to a club like Blackpool and hopefully make the number one position my own."
