4 December 2014

Defender Agrees Deal

Defender Darren O'Dea has joined Blackpool on a free transfer until January 2015.

The 27-year-old has been training with the club in recent weeks, and will remain with The Seasiders until 4 January.

The Republic of Ireland international was most recently in Ukraine with Metalurh Donetsk, who he left in August.

O'Dea has previously played in The Championship with Reading, Ipswich and Leeds.

On signing, he said: “I had a tough year in Ukraine, so I'm delighted to be at a good football club with good people, and I'm looking forward to getting started.

“I was desperate to play football again and I'm looking to now help the team.”

The move is subject to both international and Football League clearance.
