Manager Simon Grayson has expressed his delight at adding Grant Ward to his Blackpool squad.
The attacking midfielder, who has spent four years playing in the Championship, has put pen-to-paper on an 18-month contract, plus 12-month option.
“I’m delighted that we’ve been able to bring Grant in,” Grayson said. “He’s a player with proven Championship experience and he offers versatility in those attacking positions, both centrally and wide. I’ve spoken to a number of people in the game about him, including Mick McCarthy, and they all speak highly of him.
“The move is a sign of our intent to do business early in the transfer window as we look to strengthen and keep improving the squad.”
