'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Transfer Update

Normally I'd spread the following over a few articles, but there's a backlog of stories to get through, I didn't get home from the match until about 1.30am and I've not even had breakfast yet, so hopefully you'll forgive me!

After being linked with Southampton winger Jason Puncheon in the press, Sky Sports are now reporting that the Seasiders lead the race for the winger and are set to bid around 200,000 for the out of favour player after having an initial bid rejected.

Puncheon of course played for the Saints at the weekend in the FA Cup after being recalled from a successful loan spell at Millwall, where he scored five in seven games.

The media are also reporting that the Seasiders are continuing to track Dundee United forward David Goodwillie, but the Scottish club say that as of yet no firm bids have been made for the player.

Sky Sports are also reporting that Blackpool are the first club to meet Adam Hammill's get-out clause of 500,000 that allows him to speak to Premier League clubs.

The Barnsley midfielder has been in good form this season and 'Pool manager Ian Holloway is known to be a big fan of his and thinks he'd suit our system perfectly.

Earlier in the month it was reported that a move for Hammill was in doubt because of his wage demands, but with news that 'Pool chairman Karl Oyston has (allegedly) relaxed that wafe structure at the club somewhat, the move could be back on.

Meanwhile, Peter Halmosi's agent claims that the winger has rejected a move to Blackpool.

The Hungarian, who played under Ollie at Plymouth, was released by Hull earlier this month and his agent claims that he rejected a last minute move to the Seasiders to join Szombathelyi Haladas in his homeland. No, I haven't heard of them either.

Meanwhile, it is Vital's understanding that the Seasiders have been offered Man City's midfielder Michael Johnson on loan and that the Seasiders are looking at West Brom midfielder Giles Barnes.

And lastly, rumours are circulating that Aston Villa and Liverpool have had bids rejected for 'Pool captain Charlie Adam.

Villa are said to have made an improved offer of 4 million for the player, whilst Liverpool are said to have made two bids in the region of 5 million for him.

'Pool manager Ian Holloway last night reiterated that he would only sell Charlie for an offer that suited all parties and that he feels 'Pool's skipper owes it to himself, him, the club and the fans to stay until the summer and keep us up.

Meanwhile, Ollie also said that he hopes that 'Pool's start to the season will make it easier to sign players this month than it was in the summer:

'Last summer I struggled to convince people that we might not go down. I don't think that will be as difficult with 28 points in the bag.

'We know how difficult it is still going to be but other players might be saying, 'They might stay up', whereas in the summer it was, 'They`ve got no chance - they'll go down with the lowest points total ever'. So a few things might have changed.

'I am very confident we will attract a player who wants to come to us now for all sorts of good reasons, rather than bad ones.'
