Varney staying with Blackpool until end of the season

Luke Varney will stay with Blackpool until the end of the season and still wishes to sign a permanent contract at Bloomfield Road. The striker is on a season-long loan at Blackpool from Derby County and has scored five goals for the Premier League's surprise package.

However, Derby are expected to try to sell the 28-year-old in the January transfer window and the Seasiders could face competition from top-flight rivals West Brom and West Ham.

"I've said from the start that if there is in anything in place, I'd be delighted to stay here," said Varney.

"They have been fantastic to me and gave me a great chance.

"There's no way I'm going anywhere - I'm here until at least the end of the season and then I'd love to sit down and sort things out.

"It's a place where I am really enjoying my football and I'm sure I will continue to do so. I wouldn't be interested in going anywhere in January, I've made that clear."
