Blackpool boss Ian Holloway has set the record straight on his transfer plans.

Holloway is well aware of the rumours, in fact he can rattle off the names he's been linked with so far this summer.

"The playing squad is something I've got to give great care and consideration to," he told the Blackpool Gazette.

"I won't be telling people who I'm going for and I won't be letting anyone tell me who I should be going for.

"So just for the record Andy Reid, Richard Chaplow, Robbie Blake, Shaun St Ledger, Danny Welbeck, Shaun Densmore and Kirk Broadfoot ... if any of them were in my plans I wouldn't be telling anyone and it wouldn't be in the papers because I haven't brought anybody in yet.

"Where it all comes from, all these rumours, I don't know.

"I can't understand how people are linking me with those players at the moment, and I mean that with the greatest respect to every one of them because they are all fine players in their own right.

"But how anyone can say Blackpool are going to get one of these players ... it's like fantasy football.

"It isn't anything like our focus at the moment."
