Hibs midfielder Isaiah Osbourne has this afternoon completed his move to Blackpool.

The 24-year-old has signed for the seasiders in a £200,000 deal, and has signed a one-year-deal, with the option of a further year on top.

Osbourne had his first training session as a Blackpool player this morning, but he would have been lonely, with Blackpool currently in Portugal on a pre-season trip.

The former Aston Villa, Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough man spent 11 months in Edinburgh, and played 35 times for the Hibees.

Hibs have landed an excellent fee for a player they picked up for nothing last summer, and for one who wasn't the most consistent of performers.

It also free's up funds for manager Pat Fenlon to continue his Easter Road re-building job. with Ozzy now the 16th player to leave the club.

Hibernian-Mad would like to thank Ozzy for his contribution to the club, and wish him well for the future.
