Harewood: Free transfer
Blackpool have confirmed that Marlon Harewood has become the latest player to join the club.
Having been left frustrated for much of the summer transfer window, the Seasiders have suddenly sprung into life.
Boss Ian Holloway has consistently expressed his desire to bring in fresh faces and he has finally been granted his wish.
Harewood becomes the fifth player to link-up with the Premier League newcomers in the space of 24 hours.
The former Aston Villa and West Ham striker moves to Bloomfield Road as a free agent and has penned a two-year deal.
He follows in the footsteps of French trio Malaury Martin, Ludovic Sylvestre and Elliot Grandin and Northern Ireland international Craig Cathcart, who all signed up on Wednesday.
Harewood is expected to make his Blackpool bow in their top flight opener against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
