The 24-year-old has put pen to paper on a two-year deal, keeping him at the Seasiders until June 30, 2022.

In his first words after the deal was confirmed, Ekpiteta stated : "I’m so happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started.

"I’ve spoken to Neil and the Club is oozing positivity at the moment, so I feel this is a perfect opportunity to show what I can do.

"I love to defend and am also confident to play with the ball at my feet when the time is right, so I feel I have a lot to offer to Blackpool".

Blackpool have the option to extend Marvin Ekpiteta's contract by a further year.

A product of Oxford United Academy, he lists Chelmsford City, Witham Town, Concord Rangers and East Thurrock United among his previous clubs.
