Kevin Phillips has joined Blackpool on a free transfer from Birmingham after agreeing a one-year deal with the option for a further year.
Phillips, who won eight England caps, has scored 254 goals in 561 career appearances and is relishing the challenge with Ian Holloway's side.
The 37-year-old told the club's official website: "I did a fair bit of work last year for Sky television watching Blackpool when I was commentating.
"Like everyone else in the country, I enjoyed watching Blackpool play and creating chances. It was exciting to watch and Ian Holloway is an infectious manager. That was certainly a major factor in me wanting to join Blackpool.
"I've scored many goals in my career and I still believe I've got many in me. Hopefully I can get on the end of a few of those chances that we create."
The former Watford, Sunderland, Southampton, Aston Villa and West Brom forward has joined the Seasiders in Portugal for their pre-season training camp.
