Blackpool striker Adda Djeziri could earn full-time switch to Scunthorpe United
STRIKER Adda Djeziri could earn himself a full-time switch to Scunthorpe United if he impresses sufficiently while on loan.
Manager Brian Laws made the Danish-born Algerian his final signing before the loan window closed a week ago and the 24-year-old comes highly recommended by Blackpool's former boss Ian Holloway.
"He's settled in really well in terms of his footballing ability," said Laws, on Djeziri.
"That's one of the things that attracted me about him, even though he's a decent size it's not his aerial ability that's his strength, he's good with his feet.

"He moves the ball well and sees a good pass.
"We couldn't get him involved with the team at Doncaster because we already had five loanees, but now that David Prutton has gone it allows Adda to come into the squad.
"Hopefully we can get a game so we can have a good look at him.
"He's one we're looking at more on a trial basis, not just for now but for the future.
"Ian Holloway has recommended him highly. He thinks he's worth a look."
Holloway, who left Pool to take charge of Crystal Palace at the beginning of November, saw enough in Djeziri to take him to Bloomfield Road in the summer, though the 6ft 6ins front man has not featured for the Seasiders.
In fact, despite playing under Hollway at Leicester and signing for Portsmouth when Harry Redknapp was in charge at Fratton Park, he has yet to make his debut in English football.
Djeziri, who can also play on the wing, has spent most of his career in his native Denmark, where he has featured for the likes of former top-flight duo Vejle Boldklub and HB Køge.
