Pool seal Harewood signing

12 Aug 2010 - 08:41:11

Blackpool have completed a fifth signing in 24 hours, agreeing a two-year contract with experienced striker Marlon Harewood.

The 30-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the Seasiders, with the deal having previously looked in doubt due to Harewood's wage demands.

Harewood left Aston Villa at the end of last season, having struggled to make an impact during three seasons with the Midlands outfit - being loaned out to Wolves and Newcastle United.

He had previously enjoyed successful spells with Nottingham Forest and West Ham United.

On Thursday, Pool wrapped up the signings of defender Craig Cathcart and midfield trio Elliot Grandin, Malaury Martin and Ludovic Sylvestre.

Boss Ian Holloway, who has had to wait a long time to make any new signings, had earlier commented: "Our poor fans have been worried sick, on websites, asking what's happening and writing me letters.

"Did they think that I didn't want to sign players? Did they think that I haven't been trying?

"I couldn't try any harder and the harder you try, the more lucky you get."
