Newly promoted Championship side Blackpool have announced that midfielder Kevin Stewart has signed a new contract with the club.
Stewart joined Blackpool back in January on an 18-month contract, having been a free agent following the expiry of his contract Hull City the previous summer.
The 27-year-old went on to make 16 appearances for the Seasiders, helping them win promotion to the Championship via the play-offs, producing some impressive performances in the process.
Now, Stewart has seemingly been rewarded for his efforts at Bloomfield Road over the past few months, after being handed a new deal with the Tangerines.
Did these 20 midfielders ever score a goal for Blackpool?
It has been confirmed that the midfielder has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal with Blackpool, who have the option to extend that deal by a further 12 months, effectively securing Stewart’s future at Bloomfield Road until the end of the 2023/24 season.
Taking to Twitter to react to news of that new deal for Stewart, plenty of Blackpool fans appeared delighted with their club’s latest bit of business.
Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.
Brilliant news, impressed by his fitness regime since the season ended, works hard and exactly what kind of midfielder we need. Lovely fella too 👏👏👏👏🧡🧡🧡🧡
