Blackpool have made their seventh summer signing following the acquisition of Israel international Dekel Keinan.
The 25-year-old central defender has signed a one-year contract with the option of a further 12-month deal with the Seasiders.
The former Maccabi Haifa stopper joins on a free transfer and goes straight into Ian Holloway's squad to face Arsenal this weekend.
Blackpool kicked off their campaign in style with a 4-0 drubbing over Wigan and now Holloway has bolstered his defensive options.
Keinan is pleased to have wrapped up his transfer and claims he rejected various offers elsewhere to join the newly-promoted side.
"I'm looking forward to the first game and I'm very happy that everything is done," he told the club's official website.
"I just want to play for Blackpool and help this team.
"I had different offers but after I met the gaffer I was sure that I wanted to play for Blackpool."
