Nathan Delfouneso
Nathan Delfouneso has agreed a new one-year deal at Blackpool, with the option of a further year.

The forward, who recently surpassed 100 appearances for the club, returned to Bloomfield Road from Swindon Town in January and featured 21 times en route to promotion.

“I was happy when I came back and we’ve had success as well with being promoted. We’ve all made a step forward and I’m now looking to keep progressing,” Delfouneso said.

Manager Gary Bowyer has had a big role in that progression so far and Delfouneso insists his relationship with the gaffer played a key factor in his decision to stay.

“I’ve got a lot of time and respect for the manager and he’s a massive reason for why I’m here. I’m looking forward to playing under him again. Hopefully we can have some more success.

“The club should never have been in League Two and we need to keep pushing and get this club back in the top leagues, where I feel it should be.”

Great player.

I know some people aren't as keen but I reckon he'll go down as a Pool legend.

Barely good enough for League 2.

It shows what standards have slipped to that his is in reckoning of legendary status.

He did us a solid in the Championship so not sure where that comes from.

If he helps get Pool back, he'll be a legend.

9 goals in 90 Championship appearances for Blackpool, just going off his Wiki.

Doesn't equate to legend for me for a striker.

Never thought of him as a striker. In my day he'd be an outside left.

He was never played as an out-and-out striker was he?

Not keen myself anyway, looks and plays like a donkey.

I suppose you can argue that case, I still think he only really shows up about 3 games every 10 or so though!

He's only 26 though although at times iv'e thought he was much older.

Least it's a familiar face staying within the club
