Goalkeeper Agrees Terms With Blackpool

Kyle Letheren has become the latest player to join Blackpool for the new season after agreeing a two-year deal with an option for a further year.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper moves to Bloomfield Road from Dundee, where he has made 56 appearances in the last two seasons and achieved promotion to the SPL in the 2013/14 season.

The Welshman, who came through the youth system at Swansea City, kept 20 clean sheets en route to promotion that season and picked up Dundee's Player of the Year award.

Prior to his time at Dundee, Letheren spent three seasons at Kilmarnock vying against current Rangers number one Cammy Bell for a place in the side, as well as stints in England with Barnsley and Plymouth Argyle. 

Called into Chris Coleman's Wales squad for a Euro 2016 qualifier against Andorra in August 2014, Letheren is the second goalkeeper signed by Blackpool manager Neil McDonald following the arrival of Colin Doyle. 

"I'm delighted to get it over the line, it's been on the back burner for a week now since Neil rang me," he told the official website. "Since he rang me it's been the only place that I wanted to come to.

"I'm not just coming here to make up the numbers, I'm coming here to play just like everyone else. I'm sure me and Colin can push each other all the way and that can only be good for Blackpool."
