Today's Daily Mail is linking Blackpool with a move for left winger Bojan Djordjic.
Now 29 and playing for Videoton in Hungary, Djordjic has previously played for 'Pool manager Ian Holloway at Plymouth.
Fans of the Championship Manager series may well recall that about a decade ago, Djordjic (then at Manchester United) was one of the best youngsters on the game (indeed, I remember him scoring a great goal in a testimonial game v Celtic in real life which reflected this), but unfortunately that's as good as his career seems to have got.
He joined United at 17 from Swedish club Brommapojkarna, and was highly rated at Old Trafford, but it appears that his attitude got in the way of him making it big; he's quoted as saying 'I'm here to win the Champions League, not play with inferior players in the reserves.'
Loan spells at Sheffield Wednesday, AGF and Red Star Belgrade followed before Djordjic was released by United, joining Rangers on a free in 2004.
However, due to a string of injuries at Ibrox, he was restricted to just five league appearances for the club before he was snapped up by Ollie's Plymouth.
He struggled yet again at Plymouth; with several online sources stating that his attitude counted against him once again with Ollie dropping and transfer listing the player for his laziness and egotism (which makes it strange that we would be in for him, if indeed we are). His deal at Home Park was eventually terminated by mutual consent.
He joined Swedish club AIK Solna, where again he struggled with injuries. And with AIK imploding both on and off the pitch, Djordjic was linked with a move away to Israeli side Maccabi Haifa. However, it was Hungarian side Videoton that he eventually joined, with their chairman comparing him to Roberto Baggio!
Despite this comparison, Djordjic has managed just five league appearances for them since 2010.
Let's hope that this is just a rumour, eh?
