It’s a big few months for Corbeanu.

The star is looking to earn a seat on the plane for Canada’s World Cup squad.

So playing week in week out will be a big boost to his prospects.

Wolves are hoping that Corbeanu will further his development after having spells with League One sides Sheffield Wednesday and MK Dons last term.

Blackpool boss Appleton is excited to have signed the 20-year-old, saying (via Blackpool official): “We are delighted to have Theo on board. He’s a player that I’ve personally tried to sign a couple of times over the last 18 months or so.

“He’s got clear quality and he can play on either side, so he gives us options. Theo’s also got aspirations of playing in the World Cup with Canada and doing well with them.

“He’s very direct, sees a pass and has an eye for goal. We’re all looking forward to working with him.”

Corbeanu was a part of Wolves’ recent trip to Alicante, but it has been determined that he needs to experience Championship football.

This is a great move for Corbeanu and one that should bring on his development a lot.

The Championship is a brilliant division for young players coming through at Premier League clubs.

The intensity and physicality should help shape him into a much better player.

Wolves have high hopes for Corbeanu. Hopefully he is able to play as much as possible. It would be fantastic to see him go to the World Cup with Canada.
