Farrelly Set To Sign?
Blackpool VitalFootball understands that former Irish midfielder; Gareth Farrelly will sign a month to month contract at the seaside in the next few days.
His deal was signed some time ago, but the club have decided to wait until near Kick Off on Friday to announce anything official, our sources suggest.
The former Ireland international, who won six caps for the republic, has had a trail at Championship club recently - Leicester City - but that was to prove unsuccessful.
The reason Farrelly is a free agent is because he was sacked by homeland club, Bohemians following a poor run of results, the tip of the iceberg being an early exit in the FAI Cup.
He`s no stranger to English football, after spells with Aston Villa, Rotherham United,
Everton, Bolton Wanderers,Burnley, Bradford City and Wigan Athletic.
Farrelly was Sam Allardyce`s first signing as Bolton manager, and the midfielder can play in the middle or either wing.
We expect him to play a part on Friday night against Tranmere Rovers.
