Motherwell have signed forward Christopher Long on a one-year deal.
The 24-year-old made 25 appearances from Blackpool last season, scoring twice for Terry McPhillips' side.
Long joins the Scottish Premiership side after previous stints with MK Dons, Brentford, Burnley, Bolton, Northampton and Fleetwood.
On signing for the Well, Long said: "I can't wait to get started.
"I've seen a number of my ex-team-mates and players I've come up against join the club in the past and become a success. I'm hoping to follow in their footsteps."
Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson added: "We've been keen to add players in the forward positions and Chris will bring another element to our attack.
"He's got pace to burn, has an incredible work rate and can play anywhere across the front three, which will give us plenty of variety going forward."
Long becomes Motherwell's fifth signing of the summer, with Liam Polworth joining from Inverness on a pre-contract agreement in April and Casper Sloth arriving from Danish side Silkeborg.
Livingston defender Declan Gallagher and Cambridge left-back Jake Carroll have also joined ahead of next season.
Meanwhile, Curtis Main has left the Motherwell to join Aberdeen, and two bids for David Turnbull from Barnsley and Celtic have been rejected.
