The 26-year-old full-back was released by the Tynecastle side at the end of the season after battling back from a cruciate ligament injury sustained last November.

He spent a week training with new Sheffield United boss David Weir's squad with a view to winning a contract, but has now gone on trial with the Seasiders.

Blackpool boss Paul Ince has already watched the former Gretna, Dundee United and St Johnstone left-back in action in a couple of friendlies and will run the rule over him once more when his side take on York City in their latest pre-season friendly on Saturday.

Former Rangers midfielder Alex Rae - Ince's assistant at Bloomfield Road - said: "We're taking a look at Danny right now and he's already featured in a couple of our pre-season games.

"We want to take a look at him although a deal isn't imminent. I know Danny well from his time at Hearts and although he's had a few injuries he's a good player.

"So we will take another look at him this weekend and all being well there might be a deal on the table for him."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
