Blackpool boss Holloway admits transfer market dilemma

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway admits they will find it difficult to navigate the Premiership transfer market.

Holloway says there is a perception that they have more spending power thanks to their promotion.

"It will be a problem because people think we have a huge pot of gold," he told the Blackpool Gazette. "But I can tell you they won't get any of that.

"I've got to be really clever and ask lots of questions and get so much information to give to my chairman, who will be the one trying to do these deals.

"Then we can make some calculated positions. We've never been in this position. We don't know what's going to happen. But if these people think they can put an extra nought on with Karl Oyston they can think again.

"But I wouldn't want Karl any other way.

"He'll quite rightly continue to do things as he has been and there's no doubt he will be a breath of fresh air in every Premier League meeting because he will not change - and that's the refreshing thing about it all."
