Blackpool's players will be swimming in money should they win promotion back to the Premier League.

Blackpool's players will be swimming in money should they win promotion back to the Premier League.

The Sunday Mirror says Blackpool will hit the £5m jackpot if they beat West Ham in the Championship play-off final and return to the Premier League.

The Seasiders are being driven on by the prospect of a whopping bonus promised by chairman Karl Oyston last summer.

Oyston has pledged to cough up the bonus, to be shared among the squad, if they win at Wembley on Saturday.

Defender Ian Evatt said: “It’s obviously at the back of our minds as players, and something that drives us on that little bit more.

“Our pay is not the biggest in the division, but we all know the rewards if we do manage to get into the Premier League.

“It was agreed before the start of the season and is something that all the players want for themselves and their families.

“We’re desperate to get back because the riches on offer for the club are massive.”
