Premier League Alert as Vaughan Leaves Blackpool

Premier League Alert as Vaughan Leaves Blackpool

David Vaughan has officially rejected Blackpool's bumper offer of a new contract and will leave the club.

The midfielder - who was the heartbeat of the Seasiders last season - said that he needs to stay in the Premier League.

A firm favourite with the Pool fans, it was always going to be a tough ask for the club to keep the 28-year-old given his superb displays in both the promotion and relegation seasons.

The news had been coming for a number of weeks, but the Welshman leaving for pastures new is now a reality despite a late rally.

However, the player has only good things to say about the Bloomfield Road club: 'It was a very good offer and it was a tough decision, but I just want to stay in the Premier League and test myself at the highest level,' he told the official website. 'It was unfortunate that we couldn't quite stay up last season and that was a big disappointment.

'My three years at Blackpool have been great and I'd really like to thank the fans and the staff. The last couple of years have been brilliant and I leave with nothing but good memories.

'If it wasn't for Blackpool I may never have played in the Premier League, so I have a lot to thank the club and the manager for. He has changed things around and I'll always look back on my time with fond memories.'

It is widely speculated that Vaughan will move to either West Brom or Sunderland.
