Blackpool struggle to make Campbell move permanent

Blackpool are floundering in their attempts to sign Leicester City striker DJ Campbell.

Blackpool are floundering in their attempts to sign Leicester City striker DJ Campbell.

The two sides are so far unable to agree on a fee for the forward leaving the deal in the balance.

The Foxes marksman impressed while on loan at Blackpool, his goals helping to fire the Seasiders through to the play-off final where they beat Cardiff to ensure their first appearance in the top flight since 1971.

Campbell's move to Blackpool on a permanent basis then appeared to be a formality.

However, City are looking for £1.5 million for the striker who scored 11 times in 18 games last season which it seems Blackpool are not prepared to meet.
