Stags land Blackpool forward

1 February 2021

Mansfield Town is delighted to announce the loan signing of Blackpool forward Oliver Sarkic until the end of the season.

The under-21 Montenegrin international joined the Seasiders on a two-year deal in July, following a successful spell with fellow Sky Bet League One side Burton Albion.

Sarkic began his career within the youth systems of Anderlecht and Benfica, before signing for Leeds United in 2018.

The 23-year-old departed Elland Road for the Pirelli Stadium in 2019, and after a successful season with Burton Albion, signed for Neil Critchley’s Blackpool in the summer.

Sarkic has also made appearances for Montenegro’s under-17, under-19 and under-21 sides.

“We know Ollie from his time at Burton and he’ll provide us with a good option, playing anywhere across the front three,” said Stags’ boss Nigel Clough. “He’s not played too much at Blackpool so he’s raring to go.

“He has quality and pedigree. He’s a skillful player and is different to what we have in those forward three positions, and that was the main reason for bringing him in.”
