Blackpool transfer hitlist in as Holloway starts grooming his squad

Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston says the club will now begin to seriously pursue players for next season.

Seasiders manager Ian Holloway has been discussing his plans with the Bloomfield Road hierarchy and Oyston has revealed that plans are in place for another assault on promotion to the Premier League.

"I've been speaking to Ian for at least half an hour every day for the past fortnight. He knows exactly what he wants for next season and how he wants to do it," he told the Blackpool Gazette.

"He has done a lot of research on players and has left me instructions about three in particular, all foreign players, who he wants me to chase.

"I will be in direct contact with the clubs concerned, and then with the agents and players, and I will try to progress things. I want to get them signed permanently or, if that can't be done, on loan."
