Reid makes Seasiders switch

Blackpool have signed midfielder Andy Reid from Barclays Premier League rivals Sunderland for an undisclosed fee.

The 28-year-old Republic of Ireland international has made 70 appearances for the Black Cats since his £4million switch from Charlton in January 2008.

However, he became surplus to requirements under Steve Bruce and followed Paulo da Silva and David Healy out of the Stadium of Light.
