Blackpool have signed midfielder Andrea Orlandi on a one-year deal.

The 30-year-old was a free agent after leaving Brighton at the end of last season, where he made 18 appearances in 2013/14.

The Spaniard will be available for selection when the Tangerines kick-off their Sky Bet Championship campaign at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Orlandi told the club's official website: "I'm delighted to be a Blackpool player and looking forward to the new season ahead.

"We have a good squad and I rely a lot on the manager. We have good players so hopefully we'll play good football.

"I came here last week, spoke to the manager and knew straight away that I wanted to sign."

Orlandi has played in England for the last seven seasons, first with Swansea and then Brighton.
