Congo international Christoffer Mafoumbi has put pen-to-paper on an initial two-year contract at Blackpool, with the club holding an option to extend the deal by a further 12 months.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper, who was born in France, moves to Bloomfield Road after leaving South African side Free State Stars last month.
On the books of Lille and Lens in his formative years, Mafoumbi made his professional debut with Lens B in 2011 and has also spent time in Bulgaria with Stara Zagora.
The shot-stopper has been training with Blackpool for the past few weeks and featured in the recent pre-season friendly against Southport.
“I’m very happy and feeling good here. It’s my first time in England and I’m happy to sign for Blackpool,” Mafoumbi said.
The deal remains subject to international clearance being received.
