The 27-year-old has signed a one-year deal which is subject to international clearance and includes an option for a further 12 months at Bloomfield Road.

Oriol, who previously made 50 league appearances for Villarreal, completed a medical on Friday and was in attendance for the pre-season game against Burnley on Saturday.

The Spaniard’s arrival will come as a welcome boost to beleaguered Blackpool fans, who staged a protest against club chairman Karl Oyston as their team lost Saturday's friendly 1-0.

Blackpool, who had just 13 registered players entering the game, are scheduled to begin their league campaign with a visit to Nottingham Forest.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
