Blackpool have confirmed the double signing of Liverpool midfielder Thomas Ince and former Charlton Athletic defender Miguel Llera.
Skysports.com revealed last month that both players were set to move to Bloomfield Road, with the duo having been training with the Seasiders in pre-season.
Ince has now signed a two-year deal with an option for a further year after Blackpool agreed a compensation package with Liverpool.
The 19-year-old, who turned down a new contract at Anfield in search of first-team football, will be in the squad for the opener at Hull.
Meanwhile, Spanish centre-half Llera has agreed a one-year deal with the option of a further year following his departure from Charlton
Llera said: "I'm very happy to have signed, it's a fantastic opportunity for me to play in this division for the first time. With hard work I hope to help this club get back into the Premier League again.
"I've actually been here for a few weeks already, I started training with the side in Portugal and now that I've signed I will start as a substitute and try and break into the starting line-up."
