Daniel Ballard has joined Blackpool on loan for the duration of the 2020-21 season – via arsenal.com.
Update: This loan actually runs until January 31st 2021.
The Northern Ireland international left the club on loan last year, signing for Swindon Town on loan, but he suffered a serious injury and the move was cut short.
At 21, the centre-half is at an age where he needs to play regular football to aid his development, and he’ll be hoping for that at the League One outfit.
Best of luck to him.
Good move for the lad. He’s got a lot of potential. Hope he comes back ready to fight for a place in the first team.
Looks like a big lump and thats a good thing.
He seems to be doing very well for the Seasiders currently. Hope we don’t need to bank on Saliba alone, and Ballard more than just provides competition. We need more players coming through from the academy to join AMN, Saka and Bellerin
