Blackpool have signed striker Jordan Rhodes on a season-long loan from Championship side Huddersfield Town as well as former Sutton United striker Kylian Kouassi on a three-year deal.

Rhodes, 33, scored six goals in 35 games for the Terriers last season.

Scotland international Rhodes has 225 goals in 586 career matches since his senior debut for Ipswich.

20-year-old Kouassi joins Blackpool following the end of his contract with Sutton earlier this summer.

"I'm looking forward to working with this bunch of players and the manager," Rhodes said.

"It's a club that is going to be right up there at the top end of the division at the end of the season and I'm looking forward to hopefully playing a part on that journey throughout the season."

The son of ex-Oldham goalkeeper Andy Rhodes, Jordan scored 84 goals in 169 games for Lancashire rivals Blackburn earlier in his career, and also surpassed 100 games for Sheffield Wednesday among his spells.

"This is the next big step in my career, and I want to take it with both hands. I want to be a part of the journey this Club is on, and show exactly what I can do on the pitch," Kouassi added.
