After a bizarre day in the media with the 'latest' on the proposed signing of Wes Hoolahan from Livingston, fans are still no clearer what will happen to the tricky left winger.
The Daily Record today published a story reading: 'LIVINGSTON have told Blackpool they no longer have first refusal on midfielder Wes Hoolahan after claiming the English Championship new boys failed to fully honour the loan-payment conditions.'
However, football.co.uk said that: 'Blackpool boss Simon Grayson has revealed he is close to completing the permanent signing of loan star Wes Hoolahan' which was also published today.
There were reports stating that Hoolahan had signed a contractual agreement with the football club on Thursday, and that the Irish winger was to be announced a Blackpool player sometime soon.
Bad news though: the latest developments printed in the papers today signal that Livingston are now regretting agreeing a price with 'The Seasiders' last August of around £75,000 - and are holding out for a larger fee from either 'Pool or another club.
Hoolahan, who notched up 44 appearances for Blackpool last term, is said to be enjoying his time at Bloomfield Road and would like to stay - his antics in the town hall with the Irish jig showed no signs of a player who was unhappy!
If Livi were to hold out for a bigger price from a larger club than ourselves, would that not be breach of contract and therefore breaking the loan conditions, which ironically they accused Blackpool of?
Infact, if Wes wanted to stay on at the seaside he could do; even if Livingston were holding out for more money - because they surely have to accept our offer of £75K? But for a huge club coming in for him (maybe Wednesday, or Forest?!?!) - I cannot see Mr Hoolahan starting next season for anyone but the rolling tangerine machine!
