Blackpool Football Club can confirm the signing of Scott Quigley from Welsh Premier League champions The New Saints for an initial fee of £35,000, potentially rising to £50,000.
The forward, 24, has agreed a two-year contract at Bloomfield Road, with the club holding an option to extend the deal by a further 12 months.
Quigley, a winner of every major Welsh trophy in his time with TNS, has found the net on 32 occasions for the club, including eight times last season as TNS retained the Welsh Premier League title for a sixth consecutive season.
While playing for TNS he has also picked up considerable experience in UEFA Champions League qualifiers and has scored three goals in the preliminary rounds of this season’s competition.
On the move, Scott Quigley said:
“I’m really happy to be here and I’m looking forward to a new challenge. I’m just eager to get going and start training.
“I’m 24 now and it’s about time I made the step in to the English system. I’m glad to have this opportunity to prove myself.”
Manager Gary Bowyer added:
“He’s a young, powerful forward who fits in with the model we’re trying to develop at the club. He’s good with both feet, has played and scored in Champions League qualifiers and is now hungry to work hard and make the breakthrough in English football.”
The deal for Quigley, which is subject to international clearance being received, also contains a sell on clause.
