Andy Reid makes move to Blackpool

Sunderland have confirmed that midfielder Andy Reid has joined Blackpool until the end of the season for an undisclosed fee.
The 28-year-old could be joined at the club by Rangers striker James Beattie, who is undergoing a medical.
Reid has made 70 appearances for the Black Cats since signing for the club in 2008 but has been on loan recently.
The signing would provide cover for Charlie Adam, who has been the subject of a bid from Liverpool
Reid joined Sunderland from Charlton for £4m but has recently been on loan at Sheffield United. He started his career at Nottingham Forest before moving to Tottenham in 2005.
Beattie, 32, moved to Ibrox from Stoke in August but has made only seven appearances for the Scottish club.
Should the move go through it would represent a swift return to the Premier League for the forward who had a 19-month spell at Stoke.
He has five England caps and has also played for Sheffield United, Everton and Blackburn.
Beattie agreed a two-year contract at Rangers last summer with the option of a further 12 months and was the Scottish champions' first signing in two years.
The English striker, born in Lancaster, moved to Scotland after struggling to cement a regular spot at Stoke.
It also came on the back of a much-publicised bust-up with Potteries manager Tony Pulis in December 2009.
