Blackpool have signed defender Ben Heneghan on a season-long loan from Championship side Sheffield United.

The 24-year-old joined the Blades from Scottish club Motherwell last season but has yet to make a league appearance for them.

"I'm delighted to bring Ben to the club and I'd like to thank Sheffield United, who paid a considerable transfer fee for him," boss Gary Bowyer said.

"His addition will bring more size and stature in both boxes."
