Blackpool midfielder Elliot Grandin has joined French side Nice on loan until the end of the season.

The Ligue 1 outfit have an option to sign the 24-year-old permanently at the end of the season.

Grandin asked to return to his homeland because of a family issue and Seasiders boss Ian Holloway has been happy to grant the request.

Grandin joined Blackpool from CSKA Sofia in August 2010 and has scored three goals in 31 appearances.
