Former Huddersfield Town defender and captain Peter Clarke has completed a move to another of his former clubs - Blackpool, subject to a medical.

Clarke was released by Town at the end of the 2013/2014 season and had seemingly been close to moving to Doncaster Rovers after appearing for the League One outfit against the Terriers in a pre-season friendly in Portugal.

But the Seasiders have confirmed that Clarke has returned to Bloomfield Road on a one-year deal with the option of a further 12 months if he passes medical examinations.

 

He told the club website: "It's nice to be back. The place has changed a little bit but some of the same faces are still here, which is nice. 

"I return a more experienced player and someone who can hopefully help the younger players, maybe be a bit of a role model for some of them. I will give my all, as I always have done, and I'm thoroughly excited about being back." 

The central defender played 100 times for the Seasiders across two spells having gone on loan to Pool from Everton for a season in 2002 before completing a permanent move in 2004.

The 32-year-old became the third player to sign for the club as boss Jose Riga finally made a breakthrough in the transfer market by adding trialist Jacob Mellis and his former Barnsley team-mate Tomasz Cywka.

Clarke joined in with training today alongside other trialists Faris Haroun and Nathan Delfouneso while Pool are also close to tying up a deal for Costa Rica international midfielder Jose Miguel Cubero.
