A left-back capable of playing in midfield, 28-year-old James was signed from Sunderland for an undisclosed fee under Grant McCann.

He played 19 times for Blackpool last season as they finished sixteenth in their first season back in the second tier.

Meanwhile, another ex-Doncaster defender, Joe Wright, is currently on trial at Scottish Premiership side Hearts.

Wright spent all of last season recovering from a serious injury to both his knee and ankle, which he sustained on the final day of the previous campaign.
