Blackburn defender Bradley Orr has joined Blackpool on a six-month loan deal.

The 30-year-old became Paul Ince’s first signing of what was expected to be a busy transfer deadline day.

Right-back Orr finally fills the space left by the departure of Alex Baptiste to Bolton this summer.

Kirk Broadfoot, Chris Basham and Neal Bishop have all stepped-in but Ince will be delighted to finally sign a specialist right-back.

Orr began his career at Newcastle before playing more than 250 games for Bristol City.

He then had a big money move to QPR before more recently joining Blackburn Rovers.

The Liverpudlian has signed until January 2nd.
