Southampton turn down rivals bid for Puncheon

Southampton have reportedly rejected a bid from Championship rivals Blackpool for winger Jason Puncheon. The Blackpool Gazette claims the Seasiders tabled an unsuccessful offer of £650,000 for Puncheon, although the club declined to comment when approached by Press Association Sport.

Tangerines boss Ian Holloway told the Gazette: "I am definitely interested in signing Jason. He proved what he could do when he was on loan with us last season and I think he would add to our squad."

Holloway's Southampton counterpart Nigel Adkins would not be drawn on the player's future.

"We have done a little MOT on him and assessed him from a fitness point of view, just to see where he is," he said.

"He has had almost a year out on loan now, at Blackpool and then QPR, so we need to sit down and decide what the future holds."
