FORMER Wanderers winger Chris Eagles has left Blackpool after failing to agree a new deal to stay at Bloomfield Road.

The ex-Manchester United man only joined the Seasiders in November and made his debut against the Whites in the 1-1 draw between the sides four days later.

And after several months without a club following his summer exit from the Macron Stadium, Eagles had hoped to earn a stay until the end of the campaign.

On his arrival, he said: "I want to stay until the end of the season, everyone knows that.

“I’m in talks with the club at the moment. I’d like to seal the deal now.

“I’m loving it here. I get on with all the lads and the gaffer, and the fans have taken to me too. It’s brilliant.”

But talks broke down and after the 29-year-old's two-month contract ended at the weekend, Eagles is now a free agent again with a return to Wanderers mooted recently.

Tangerines boss Lee Clark had seemingly been as keen as Eagles to keep the wide man on board at Bloomfield Road but is now resigned to looking elsewhere at other options as he looks to bolster his squad for the fight against relegation in the second half of the campaign, with former Bury full-back Tom Kennedy also moving on.

Clark told the Blackpool Gazette: “We are not going to renew Chris’ contract.

"We’ll be using the finance elsewhere. We have other areas we need to add to.”

Eagles played seven times for the Seasiders, firing his only goal in December’s draw at Charlton.

Meanwhile, another ex-Wanderer has been on the move in non-league.

Wayne Buchanan has moved to Northern League First Division side Ashington from neighbours Morpeth Town.

The 33-year-old Northern Irishman played just once for the Whites as a second-half substitute in a 4-0 FA Cup defeat at Tottenham in February 2002.
