Sow set for Blackpool switch

Blackpool are closing on the signing of Osman Sow, with

Syrianska FC resigned to losing the striker.

The 23-year-old recently took in a spell on trial at Bloomfield

Road, which saw him figure in a friendly outing.

He may not have been around the club for long, but he made a

positive impression on Seasiders boss Paul Ince.

He feels Sow is worth bringing on board full-time, and terms are

about to be tabled.

Swedish outfit Syrianska appreciate that they cannot compete

with a Championship club and expect a deal with Blackpool to be

completed shortly.

Sporting director Jan Girgo told Fotbolldirekt.se: “It looks

like Osman will leave us.

“We would like to keep him, but I can understand that it is

difficult to reject a lucrative offer from there.

“There is still a chance, but it is not likely that he will stay

with us.”
