Peterborough midfielder Ollie Norburn has joined League One rivals Blackpool for an undisclosed fee.

Norburn has put pen to paper over a two-year deal at Bloomfield Road as the Seasiders aim to bounce back from last season’s relegation from the Championship.

The Bolton-born midfielder was one of several players made "available for transfer" at London Road alongside Jonson Clarke-Harris, who was the top scorer in the division last term.

Wanderers were linked with Norburn earlier this summer and had reportedly enquired about the 30-year-old.

He told the club website: “There’s been previous interest from the club and head coach before, so I’m absolutely delighted to be here.

“Blackpool is somewhere I wanted to come before the club showed their desire to bring me here, so it’s been a massive pull overall. I’m a northern lad as well so it all seems to fit well.

“I like to class myself as a leader and I’ve got a big desire to do well here and play a part in getting this club back where it should be.”

Neil Critchley returned to Blackpool for a second spell in charge earlier this summer, succeeding Mick McCarthy in the hot seat.

Former Bolton striker Stephen Dobbie also had a spell as interim boss before returning to his role with the Under-21 side.

“It has been no secret of our desire to bring Ollie to Blackpool for a while now,” Critchley added. “We are delighted to finally announce him signing.

“He has proven himself as a key figure at different clubs over a number of years. He has immense leadership qualities, undoubted ability and is someone who we believe our supporters will love watching. 

“We would like to welcome Ollie to the club and we can’t wait to start working with him."
