Blackpool get go-ahead to sign David Carney


Blackpool beat the transfer deadline by a matter of minutes to seal the signing of former Everton and Sheffield United midfielder David Carney.

The 26-year-old Australia international has joined the Seasiders on a one-year contract from Dutch club FC Twente.

Pool's club secretary told The Gazette:"We got the emails back from FC Twente just before six o'clock last night (Monday), so it was a mad rush to get them printed off and faxed to the FA and the Premier League.

"Fortunately, the confirmation came through and I was delighted to tell the gaffer and the player that the move had been given the green light."

Carney himself added:"It has been a busy 24 hours, but I am delighted it is done now and I am looking forward to getting out there playing.

"The way Blackpool play suits me and I am looking forward to meeting the lads and getting started."
