Sky Sports News understands that James Beattie is having a medical at Blackpool ahead of a proposed move from Rangers.

Beattie only joined Rangers in the summer, signing a two-year deal with the option of a further 12 months after falling out of favour at Stoke.

However, he has found first-team opportunities hard to come by at Ibrox and speculation has resurfaced over his future in recent weeks.

A number of clubs have been linked with a January swoop for the former England striker and Blackpool now appear keen to strike a deal before Monday night’s transfer deadline.

Blackpool are also about to complete the signing of Sunderland midfielder Andy Reid in a deal said to be worth around £1m. These moves will of course strengthen the suspicion that Charlie Adam is about to be offloaded by the Tangerines but as yet there is no news on whether the want-away Scot is set to leave Bloomfield Road.

Both Beattie and Reid have a great deal of top level experience and moves to bring them to the club may prove a master-stroke as Ian Holloway looks to build on an impressive first half of the Premier League campaign.
