Blackpool have signed West Bromwich Albion defender Zac Ashworth for an undisclosed fee on a three-year deal.

The 21-year-old Wales Under-21 international is the son of sporting director Dan Ashworth.

He had a loan spell in League One with Bolton Wanderers last season and scored two goals in 16 league appearances.

“Blackpool is a massive club and this is a great opportunity for a fresh start," he told the club website.
