Blackpool have re-signed striker Steve Davies on a short-term contract, as confirmed by their official club website.

The experienced forward has been training with the League One side for the past month and has finally put pen to paper.

Davies, who is 30 years-old, has been a free agent since his release by fellow League One side Rochdale at the end of last season in May.

He is a familiar name amongst Football League fans and has racked up 338 appearances so far in his career, scoring 73 goals.

Davies started out at local side Tranmere Rovers and rose through the youth ranks at Prenton Park. He went onto play 71 times for their first-team and was snapped up by Derby County in 2008.

He spent four years with Derby in the Championship and bagged a combined 23 goals. Bristol City then signed him in August 2012 for a fee of £750,000. Davies scored 13 goals in all competitions in his only season at Ashton Gate before he left them for Blackpool.

Davies spent a year-and-a-half at Bloomfield Road before going out on loan to Sheffield United for the latter half of the 2014/15 season in League One. He has since stayed in the third tier and has had stints at Bradford City and Rochdale since then.

He is still only 30 and will be hoping to make his second spell at Blackpool better than his first. Steve Davies has proven in the past before that he can score goals and he is a very useful striker at League One level.
