Yussuf returns to the Moors on loan deal until January 2020

RETURNING forward Adi Yussuf admits it was “an easy decision” for him to return, after re-joining Solihull Moors on a short-term loan from Blackpool.

The 27-year-old departed Tim Flowers’ side in the summer for League One football, but having failed to make his debut in his short time at Bloomfield Road so far, has decided to return to familiar surroundings.

Speaking on his loan move, which expires on January 5th 2020, Yussuf said: “After the season I had last season, I got the move to Blackpool.

“A new manager came in, brought in his own players and I went down the pecking order.

“Instead of just sitting around, I thought to go and get some game time, and there’s no better place to come back to.

“I’ve come here to work hard, I need to prove to Blackpool that I’m good enough – I’m still fit and I can score goals.

“The fans showed me a lot of love last season, and all I can do is pay them back by scoring goals and winning games.”

Flowers is hoping the hit-man, who found the net 21 times last term, can replicate his scoring form at a timely period for the club – who are currently winless in 90 minutes in six games.

“We’re delighted to have Adi back for a short period of time,” he said.

“We are bare bones all over pitch at the moment, not just up front.

“We need to get some bodies in, and Adi was open to coming.

“We welcome him back with open arms and hope he continues with where he left off from last season.”

Yussuf is available for selection straight away, starting with Saturday’s (3pm) home game against Yeovil Town.
