Blackpool midfielder Jamie Devitt has agreed to join Newport County on loan, Football Insider understands.
The 30-year-old had been told to find a new club by Tangerines boss Neil Critchley and he was not given a squad number for the 2020/21 season.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that the season-long move is set to be finalised imminently ahead of Friday’s 5pm cut-off.
Critchley told the Blackpool gazette last month: “Jamie knows the situation, he’s been spoken to about it. He has a few weeks to sort out that situation, so we will wait and remain patient and see what happens.”
Devitt was signed for Blackpool last summer by Simon Grayson but was sent out on loan to League Two side Bradford City having not played a competitive game for the club.
The Dublin-born star has spent the vast majority of his career in the fourth tier of English football, with 265 appearances under his belt in the league.
