Blackpool boss Holloway on transfer market: I feel like gold prospector

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway says he's not rushing into signing any unknown player.

The former Leicester manager is yet to make any additions to his squad this summer, but Holloway insists he is sifting through plenty of offers.

"I feel like a gold prospector," Holloway said. "One of them may be a lump of gold but most won't be."

He continued: "I'm being serious when I say we've had thousands, not hundreds, of players recommended to us by agents.

"But although I need players, I won't be launching myself into the transfer market and making crazy signings of overpaid and overrated players.

"Everyone else has fallen into that trap but I'm not going to.

"I am going to take my time, work with my chairman and try to get some real good people in to help my lads, who were so fantastic last season."

Blackpool are believed to be close to completing a deal for Dekel Keinan, the 25-year-old Israeli defender from Maccabi Haifa, and have also been linked with Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Michael Bradley, who played for the United States at the World Cup.
