Nolan believes the side's young players will light up the Premier League next season.
"I'm absolutely delighted," he said.
"It's been special. Jack Collison and those boys are going to bless the Premier League.
"We were favourites from day one. We said we wanted to win the league and go up automatically. This was plan B. Thankfully we did it and I think we deserved it.
"It was a lot of relief more than anything. It's been a tough day today. Blackpool didn't make it easy."
