Sky Bet League Two side Yeovil Town have confirmed on their official website the signing of former Blackpool striker Francois Zoko on a short-term contract.
The 32-year-old Ivorian was a free agent having left Bloomfield Road at the end of last season and has signed for the Somerset-based side until January 20th, and will go some way to bolstering the attacking options available to manager Paul Sturrock.
He joins a Yeovil squad struggling at the wrong end of the League Two table with only ten points from their opening 17 games.
Zoko, who began his professional career 14 years ago in France with AS Nancy, has scored goals and has lots of experience in the Football League, having spent time at Notts County, Stevenage and, most recently, Bradford City, where he spent six months of last season.
Despite this, he has spent most of his career on the continent in France, Belgium and Turkey, before moving to England to join Carlisle United in 2010.
Zoko is in the matchday squad for the Glovers’ trip to Newport County this afternoon, with the game already being labelled as a relegation six-pointer.
The two teams are separated by just four points going into today’s match, and it remains to be seen whether either side are still in the Football League come May.
