Foley's Loan Switch

Defender joins Blackpool

Kevin Foley has joined Blackpool on a one-month emergency loan.

The versatile Republic of Ireland international has found opportunities limited at Molineux this season, firstly by a niggling ankle injury and then by the form of a Wolves defence which is currently the meanest in the country.

Samuel Ricketts, Matt Doherty and Ethan Ebanks-Landell have all impressed at right back so far this season, leaving the experienced Foley in need of an opportunity of regular first team football.

The 29-year-old, whose last league action for Wolves came as a last minute substitute at Shrewsbury in September,  will now get that opportunity in the Sky Bet Championship with Blackpool.

"It's a great move for Kevin," said Head Coach Kenny Jackwett.

"Right back has been a good position for us this season.

"The defence is doing very well and Sam Ricketts is currently in the team, Matt Doherty is back full fit again and Ethan Ebanks-Landell has also moved across from centre back and done very well too.

"Kevin hasn't done anything wrong to be honest - it is just players are ahead of him - and this is a good move for him and a fresh start to get out playing which suits both him and Blackpool."
