John O’Sullivan has become Blackpool’s latest summer signing, penning an initial one-year deal with an option for a further year.
The attacking midfielder, 24, moves to Bloomfield Road after 18 months with Carlisle United, where he made a total of 42 appearances.
A former Republic of Ireland under-21 international, O’Sullivan started his career at Blackburn Rovers and also had two fruitful loan spells with Accrington Stanley.
His switch to Blackpool sees him link up again with manager Gary Bowyer and assistant Terry McPhillips, whom he worked under at academy and first-team level at Ewood Park.
Manager Gary Bowyer said:
“John is a player we know very well and I’m really pleased to bring him to the club. We know the qualities he possesses and what he’s capable of producing, and he arrives here with a point to prove.”
John O’Sullivan added:
“I came here last week and met Gary and Terry and had a good chat with them about where I want to be and should be. It was an easy decision for me to come and play for them. I’ve worked with them in the past - they’ve known me since I was 15 – and they know my strengths and my weaknesses. I can’t wait to get going.”
