Blackpool boss Ian Holloway admits he tried to sign Everton fullback Seamus Coleman this season.

Holloway describes Coleman's arrival last season as one of the major reasons behind his side winning promotion.

He also remarked: "I tried to get him back on loan this season but David Moyes said 'no' because Seamus would get in his first team. Typical Moyesey, he is a man of his word and put Seamus in. I saw Seamus create Tim Cahill's goal in the Merseyside derby and I was really pleased for the lad."
