Blackpool have signed Australia international David Carney from FC Twente for an undisclosed fee.

Blackpool have signed Australia international David Carney from FC Twente for an undisclosed fee.

The versatile 26-year-old has signed a one-year deal with the newly-promoted Premier League club, with the option of a further year.

Carney joined Dutch club FC Twente last summer on a two-year deal after failing to establish himself in the Championship with Sheffield United.

The former Everton trainee, who can play down either wing but particularly the left, made eight substitute appearances as ex-England boss Steve McClaren led Twente to the club's first-ever Eredivisie title.

After being released by Everton in 2003, Carney had short stints with Oldham and Hamilton before returning to Australia with Sydney FC, where he kick-started his career and earned a move to Sheffield United in 2007.
