Wood signs for Latics
Wood spent the start of pre-season at Bloomfield Road but was unable to agree terms to stay at the club.
He then spent time at Oldham making three friendly appearances enough to earn the former Manchester United player a two year contract.
Wood revealed to Oldham's official website that he rejected Blackpool's offer but was delighted to sign for the Latics.
Simon Grayson was hoping to sign Wood to complete his midfield but still has hopes of signing a 'creative' midfielder as well as a striker before the season opener against Brentford.
