Coyle: Mahon can star at seaside

The 30-year-old midfielder found first-team opportunities hard to come by at Turf Moor this term, and will ease an injury crisis at Bloomfield Road.

Clarets boss Coyle said: "Alan Mahon is a lad I have got so much time for and I hold him in very high esteem.

"He has been a terrific servant for me at this football club and I've no doubt he will do his best to keep Blackpool in the Championship."

Meanwhile, Burnley's penultimate home game of the season, against play-off rivals Sheffield United, has been put back to Monday, April 20 and will be shown live on Sky, kick-off 7.45pm.
