Eagles Joins The Seasiders

18 November 2014

Winger Becomes Latest Recruit

Chris Eagles has agreed a deal to join Blackpool until January 2015.

The winger has been training with the club in recent weeks, and will remain with The Seasiders until 18 January.

Eagles, who turns 29 on Wednesday, has been without a club since departing Bolton Wanderers in the summer.

The former-Manchester United academy product has played in the Premier League with United, Burnley and Bolton.

On signing, Eagles said: “I've got to do what I love to do best, and that is to excite the crowd, score and create. What I've seen of the club and staff so far has been brilliant.

“I'm chomping at the bit. I've obviously played against Blackpool before, the fans are brilliant with the drum at home, so I'll be looking forward to that."

Available to make his debut against his former club on Saturday, Eagles will wear the number 12 shirt for Blackpool.
