Howard made 11 appearances for Aberdeen last season

Blackpool have completed the signing of goalkeeper Mark Howard on a short-term contract until January.

The 25-year-old, who came through Arsenal's youth system, was released by Aberdeen during the summer.

Despite having offers from various clubs to remain in Scotland he decided to look at options south of the border.

Howard could feature in Saturday's trip to Portsmouth if he receives international clearance from the Scottish FA, FA and Football League.
