BLACKPOOL have completed the loan signing of Cherries star Wes Thomas.

The 25-year-old striker was last week understood to have handed in a transfer request and has now linked up with the Championship outfit until January 1.

Tangerines boss Michael Appleton is a known admirer of Thomas after the former Crawley Town man's successful loan spell at Portsmouth earlier this season.

Thomas notched three goals in seven games at Fratton Park under Appleton, before the Lancastrian replaced Ian Holloway as Blackpool manager earlier this month.

Mark Molesley, meanwhile, has joined League Two side Plymouth on a month-long loan deal, which could be extended.

Cherries youngster Josh Wakefield has also moved on loan to League Two side Dagenham & Redbridge.
