Seasiders seal deal for Keinan

Blackpool have completed the protracted signing of defender Dekel Keinan on a free transfer. The 25-year-old Israel international was first linked with the Seasiders at the beginning of the summer after impressing manager Ian Holloway during a trial. Keinan has officially penned a one-year contract at Bloomfield Road after being granted a work permit. The former Maccabi Haifa defender has won 15 international caps for Israel. "I'm looking forward to the first game and I'm very happy that everything is done," he told the club's official website. "I just want to play for Blackpool and help this team. "I had different offers but after I met the gaffer I was sure that I wanted to play for Blackpool."
