FORMER Sunderland winger Andy Reid has been released by Blackpool following the Seasiders’ relegation from the top flight.

Reid joined Blackpool on a free transfer in January after Sunderland paid up the remaining six months of the 28-year-old’s contract at the Stadium of Light.

But the Republic of Ireland international has struggled to make an impression at Bloomfield Road, making just two starts for Ian Holloway’s side and failing to appear in a Tangerines shirt since early April.

Reid was one of 11 players released by Blackpool yesterday.
