Richard Keogh has agreed a one-year deal to join Championship outfit Blackpool.

In 2019 the Republic of Ireland international had his Derby County contract terminated having been involved in a car crash which resulted in former team-mates Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett being convicted of drink-driving.

In the summer of 2020 he joined MK Dons and then went to Huddersfield the following January.

"Once I'd spoken to the manager and the owner, it was quite clear that this was obviously the right place for me," the 34-year-old told the Blackpool website.

"We shared a lot of similar values about how the game should be played and it was really refreshing how they were as people.

"I'm now excited to get to know the lads, give my best and hopefully bring out the best in them as well."

Blackpool boss Neil Critchley added: "He'll bring valuable experience to the group, having played the vast majority of his career in the Championship. He’s a good communicator, leader and footballer who can pass on his knowledge to the rest of the group.

"What impressed me when we spoke was that he still wants to learn, improve and get better, and that fits with the players we already have here at the club.

"He has a fantastic record of playing games on a regular basis and we’re looking forward to working with him and welcoming him to the dressing room."
