31 January 2017

Midfielder Joins From Bury

Neil Danns has joined Blackpool on loan from Bury for the remainder of the season. 

The experienced midfielder, 34, has featured 21 times for The Shakers this season and scored goals in games against Charlton Athletic and AFC Wimbledon. 

Born in Liverpool, Danns started out with Blackburn Rovers and went on to play for Saturday's visitors Colchester United and then Birmingham City, achieving promotions with both clubs. 

From there he joined Crystal Palace, making more than 100 league appearances at Selhurst Park, and followed it up with a spell at Leicester City and then Bolton Wanderers. 

"Neil's a really good addition to our midfield, he's vastly experienced, strong going forward and scores goals," manager Gary Bowyer commented.   

It marks the second time that Danns has moved to Blackpool in his career, having previously been with the club for a loan spell in 2003.
