BLACKPOOL are reported to have agreed a £1million fee with Sunderland for Andy Reid.
Reid has been on loan at Sheffield United earlier this season but opted against extending his stay.
He came into the Black Cats’ side for their FA Cup third round shock exit at home to Notts County.
But he didn’t shine and is not in boss Steve Bruce’s plans.
Sunderland will view £1m as a good bit of business for a player in the final season of his contract.
Blackpool are battling to retain the services of Charlie Adam, who has attracted bids from Liverpool and Aston Villa.
