With newspaper reports linking managerless Burnley with a move for Blackpool manager Ian Holloway, Holloway himself has moved to deny the link in an interview with BBC Radio Lancashire.
'It is very flattering but I'm not going anywhere,' he said.
'I've got a contract that suited the club and myself and I fully intend to work that all the way through.
'I'm thoroughly enjoying my work. I'm more than happy doing my job and the chairman [Karl Oyston] will need a massive tub of cream to get rid of me. I'm like a bad rash and not easily cured.'
Ollie also used the opportunity to underline again his long term plans for the club:
'I hope to bring the right age group [transfer wise] that will become sellable assets in the future and hopefully I'll replace them before they get sold on so we have a continuing loop of good players.
'Eventually the level of our play and the way they play will be ingrained in them. People will like it and it'll become sought after and people will buy our players. We'll then be a good company who can then build and put itself on the map rather than ask two very rich men [president Valeri Belokon and majority shareholder Owen Oyston] to keep coughing up money and throwing it away every year.
'We've got a very good structure here that's working and there'll be no stone unturned worldwide. We're looking for stylish players who can play in a continental way.'
The Blackpool gaffer, ever the PR machine, also used his interview as an opportunity to get cosy with chairman Karl Oyston - rather apt timing you have to say given that the transfer window has just opened, plus perhaps an attempt to get Potter to offer him a lucrative new contract following our great start to the season (although I'm still not sure that Ollie really is here for the long haul).
'I had a long chat with the chairman this week and he just gives me total clarity all the time.
'It's nice to get someone who makes commonsense of things. I don't think he [Oyston] gets a fair view from our fans and I'm thoroughly enjoying working with him.'
