Blackpool close in on former Arsenal winger Quincy Owusu-Abeyie to bolster squad

Quincy Owusu Abeiye is seeking to sign a deal with Blackpool

English side Blackpool have opened talks with former Arsenal winger Quincy Owusu-Abeyie seeking to sign the Ghana international to a short-term contract.

The former Arsenal winger, who has been a free agent since his release by Greek side Panathinaikos, has held a series of discussions with officials from the Championship club.

Should the talks continue to be positive, the 28-year-old will sign a deal with the Seasiders, potentially until January.

Owusu-Abeyie, who will sign for the club on a free transfer is seeking the short term deal because he is confident he can land a bumper cash deal in January if he impresses in his short spell at Blackpool.

The Championship strugglers are continuing to piece together a squad with former Leeds striker El Hadji Diouf training with them also last week.

The winger is hoping that a good spell at the Championship side could help him to return to play for the Black Stars at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco.

Do you think Abeyie should be invited to play for the Black Stars in future matches? Make your views known in the box below:

    If he dazzles and make a big impact at Blackpool or any other club, why shouldn't he be invited to AFCON 2015. You guys should remember that he is the current fastest footballer in the world and if it's not hard luck and bad publicity, he should be playing for the likes of Man U, AC Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid. It's got nothing to do with football talent or lack of effort (because he has plenty) why he is in this position.
