Beans means wins?
Bean came through the Rangers Youth ranks and made his debut as a substitute at Wycombe in 2002. He was then able to cement a starting place in the promotion side of 2003/04, his effort were rewarded with the young player of the season award.
With the step up to Championship standards, new faces at QPR and injury forced Bean to be loaned out to Swansea, over two spells he made 15 starts and scored one goal for the Swans. Once Bean was deemed surplus to requirements at Rangers his first option was a move to the Liberty Stadium 'If it was down to me I'd stay here, I love the club, the fans, the players and the area and would love to come back,' said Bean back in November.
So will the capture of Bean see a change in the fortunes for the Seasiders? Well only time will tell, and while time is telling you can check out his profile by clicking here.
