Howard set to leave Blackpool

Howard set to leave Blackpool

Mark Howard will leave Blackpool after Saturday's game against Crystal Palace when his contract runs out.

Sources close to the goalkeeper have told Vital Blackpool that contract negotiations have stalled, with very little improvement on his current deal.

The free agent signed for the Seasiders earlier in the season on a cut-price deal for six months.

He has had offers from three unnamed clubs - one in each of the Championship, League one and the MLS.

Howard is said to have loved his time at Bloomfield Road, enjoyed playing for Ian Holloway and wants to stay at the club.

But unless the club goes back in with an increased offer, Howard will be forced to leave for purely 'financial reasons'.
