'Pool Looking To Add Tiger To Family?

Today's rumour has seen Blackpool linked with a move for Hull City's 33 year old striker Daniel Cousin.

Cousin, who is a Gabonese international, began his career in France before starring in the SPL for Rangers and earning a move to the Tigers.

He scored 8 goals in 30 appearances for the Tigers before being loaned out to Larissa, where he scored 2 in 9.

With Hull in financial peril following their relegation, they need to offload as many of their 'golden oldies' who are on big wages as possible - and that's where Blackpool come in.

However, the origin of the source says that Blackpool have already had a £2 million bid turned down for the player - would the Seasiders really spend that much on a 33 year old, especially when Ollie has put his emphasis on youth?!

The Blackpool squad return to pre-season training tomorrow, and whilst transfer negotiations are continuing on numerous fronts, it is not yet clear whether there will be any new faces at Squires Gate tomorrow morning.

Indeed, it is our understanding that there may not be any new signings until the middle of the month, with the club looking at players as far away as Eastern Europe.

Take him! And by the way, we'd never be rejecting a 2 million bid.

You can have him for 2, not 2M.

This is rubbish, it's come from a joke post on, I can't believe you're repeating it, you could definitely get him for nothing.

And after half a dozen game without scoring, he'd lose interest...

The story was from here btw, not They've changed the wording though from when it was originally published (when it said that we'd had a bid rejected) - now it just says that we'd be prepared to pay 2 million.
