He last played for Rovers 12 months ago, then was loaned for Cardiff and made 15 Championship appearances in a season which ended in promotion to the Premier League.

Feeney will take the number 24 shirt and his contract includes the option of a further 12 months.

Blackpool's interim boss Terry McPhillips said the club had been working on the deal for a while. "That has been happening for a few weeks now. Obviously he was at Blackburn with myself and Gary (Bowyer)," he said.

"We know him as a person. We know what he offers the team and the squad and we're really pleased to sign him."
