Edu Oriol joins twin brother at Blackpool

18 August 2014

Blackpool have signed Spanish winger Edu Oriol, who follows his twin brother Joan Oriol in moving to Bloomfield Road this summer.

Edu Oriol, 27, has penned a 12-month contract with the Seasiders - and has the option of a further year - but must wait for international clearance before he can take to the field.

The former Barcelona B midfielder spent last season with Cypriot club AEL Limassol and will now play on the same team as his sibling for the first time since the 2006-07 season.

"I am very happy to be here, for me and my twin it is the best dream to play here," Edu Oriol told Blackpool's official website.

"Now it is about working hard and starting to win.

"The style in England is physical so maybe I need more preparation. But I have confidence in my technique and character as a player."
