Blackpool striker Adda Djeziri agrees loan move to Scunthorpe United
BLACKPOOL striker Adda Djeziri has joined Scunthorpe United on loan.
The 24-year-old Algerian-Danish front man signed for the Tangerines in the summer following a month's trial but has yet to play for them this season.
He will stay with the Iron until January 5.
Djeziri has previously spent time at Scottish club Rangers, as well as Leicester City and Portsmouth, but prior to joining Blackpool spent the last four years back in Denmark.

United manager Brian Laws admitted earlier in the day he was keen to add a new face before the loan transfer deadline this afternoon, saying he was particularly bearing in mind longer-term prospects.
"I've had a couple of players recommended to me by good managers and they're worth having a look at," he said.
"If I brought them in it might not be for the team now, but maybe for January.
"I might be able to get them on loan at no cost to the club and if that's the case, that's a no brainer.
"If that's a possibility, I'll do that."
The loan window closed at 5pm this afternoon, with the Iron manager expecting plenty of business to be done.
"Since I've been in at Scunthorpe the phone's been busy, so there's nothing unusual about that," he said.
"I think a lot of managers, particularly in League One and Two will be trying to do some business before 5pm today.
"It always seems to be the mad day, everyone always seems to wait until the last day.
"I'm expecting a few twists and turns."
