Marvin Ekpiteta has signed a new contract with Blackpool to keep him at Bloomfield Road until June 2024.   The centre-back, who joined Blackpool from Leyton Orient in the summer of 2020, has made 66 appearances and scored five goals. A promotion winner at Wembley last season, the 26-year-old has stepped up another level in the Championship and assumed captaincy duties in the absence of Chris Maxwell. Ekpiteta said: “I’m delighted to sign a new deal at Blackpool and I’m excited to see what the next few years holds. I’ve been here for nearly two seasons now and I’m enjoying it up here and so are my family. I’m enjoying playing my football and it’s nice to sign for a bit longer. “I’ve developed loads under the gaffer and improved my game on-and-off the pitch. I just want to keep getting better and better.”
