Blackpool fans react after club sign Arsenal's Daniel Ballard on loan
A number of Blackpool fans have taken to Twitter to comment after the club confirmed on their official website that they had completed a deal to sign Arsenal youngster Daniel Ballard on loan.
Ballard is yet to make his debut for the Gunners. However, he has been a stalwart of their under-18 and under-23 sides in the past.
He is also a player who has two international caps under his belt. The 21-year-old made his Northern Ireland debut earlier this year.
And on the initial deadline day on Monday, he became the latest Arsenal youngster to secure a loan move to League One.
Blackpool confirmed that he has joined on loan until January.
It is not clear whether there is scope for the loan to be extended. But Ballard will certainly be hoping to produce the kind of performances that leave the Blackpool supporters imploring the club to do all they can to keep him beyond the winter window.
What should encourage Arsenal fans is there seems to be plenty of Seasiders supporters expressing their delight at Ballard’s arrival on social media.
Many are confident that he is going to prove to be an impressive signing for Neil Critchley’s men as they look to recover from a disappointing start to the new campaign.
Here is how some of the supporters reacted to Ballard’s arrival…
Lovely a commanding CB welcome to the Seaside @dg_ballard
