Blackpool secure move for former Blackburn ace

Blackpool have landed winger Liam Feeney on a two-year deal following his release from Blackburn in the summer.

31-year old Feeney has an initial two-year deal, but with the option of a further 12-months if both sides are happy with the arrangement.

Feeney had been a free agent after leaving Blackburn at the end of last season and has had eight different clubs, including two spells at Ewood Park and two with Bolton Wanderers.

He’s made over 400 senior appearances in his career to date, 121 of which came with Bournemouth before their rise through the divisions. He last appeared at Dean Court in 2012, shortly before securing a switch to Championship side Millwall.

Feeney spent last season on loan at Cardiff City, where he helped Neil Warnock’s men win promotion to the Premier League with 16 appearances.
Blackpool are currently tenth in League One, having won one and drawn two of their opening four games.

Terry McPhillips is currently overseeing first team affairs, but has no interest in the role on a full-time basis.

Our View

We reported on the possibility of a move yesterday, remarking then it looked like quite a coup. Feeney should surely have been looking at lower Championship, so to pull this off is remarkable.

Despite the off field problems, the Tangerines are thriving once again and look capable of getting back in the Championship, the addition of Liam Feeney will only serve to strengthen that position.
