Isaiah Osbourne spent just one season with Hibernian

Blackpool have completed the signing of midfielder Isaiah Osbourne from Hibernian.

Osbourne, 24, has penned a one-year deal with the Seasiders which includes the option of a further 12 months, joining for a six-figure fee believed to be in the region of £250,000.

He spent just one season north of the border having moved to Hibs from Aston Villa and is also no stranger to Seasiders manager Ian Holloway, having enjoyed the briefest of spells under him at Leicester.

"I'm delighted to be joining this club and absolutely buzzing to be here," Osbourne told Blackpool's official website.

He added: "I went on loan to Leicester when I was playing for Aston Villa and I only had one training session under him (Holloway) before I was called back, but he made a big impression on me in a short space of time.

"I got to like him even during that one day and hopefully this time it lasts a little bit longer than the first time."
