Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is chasing Newcastle United striker Leon Best.
The News of the World says it was feared the Toon striker had sustained ankle ligament damage just before the start of the season but his injury is not as bad as first feared.
Republic of Ireland international Best will be open to the move after making just six league starts for Newcastle in the Championship last season.
