Ghana goalkeeper Richard Kingson has sealed his free transfer to Blackpool. The Accra-born player is a free agent following his release by Wigan.

The move for the 32-year-old, who previously had a brief spell with Birmingham, is subject to work permit and Premier League clearance.

He has now rejoined the Ghana international squad ahead of their game with Swaziland on Sunday.

Kingson was part of the Ghana side who controversially lost a penalty shoot-out against Uruguay in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in South Africa.

He has been signed due to a long term injury to Paul Rachubka.

His arrival comes a day after Australia defender David Carney moved from Dutch Eredivisie champions FC Twente.
