Blackpool have signed midfielder Oliver Sarkic on a two-year contract following his release by Burton Albion.

The 22-year-old former Anderlecht and Benfica trainee has the option to extend the deal by a further year.

Montenegro under-21 international Sarkic made 37 appearances for Burton last season, scoring five goals.

“I feel confident I can bring a great deal to the side in the final third and am really looking forward to the future here,” Sarkic said.

He is Blackpool's third signing ahead of the 2020-21 season following striker Keshi Anderson and defender Marvin Ekpiteta.
