With Howard out until next season,Mafoumbi would be expected to man the sticks until the end of the season.

League One side Blackpool have managed to acquire the services of young Paudie O’Connor from Leeds United on a season-long loan deal. The 20-year-old centre-back made his first-team debut for the Peacocks against Sunderland in April this year and he most-recently penned a new contract before joining the Seasiders.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he said:“I’ve had a nice week of getting a new deal at Leeds and then getting the opportunity to come to a great club like Blackpool. I’m really excited to get in, meet the lads and get training. I’m looking forward to getting a full season of first-team football under my belt, hopefully.”
