Blackpool have signed striker Jamille Matt from neighbouring League One side Fleetwood Town on a two-year deal.

The 26-year-old, who spent the final two months of the 2015-16 season on loan at Plymouth, will join Gary Bowyer's men later this month.

Jamaican-born Matt scored seven goals in 14 games for Argyle as they reached the League Two play-off final.

"Jamille fits the profile for the type of striker I wanted to bring to the club," Bowyer told the club website.external-link

"He's strong, powerful, determined and, most importantly, knows where the goal is," Bowyer added.

Matt is Bowyer's first signing since he became Blackpool boss on 1 June.
