Relegation boot-sale part 3: Blackpool

Ian Holloway has kept us entertained all season, not just with his press conferences, but with his teams style of play. Blackpool really took it to the rest of the Premier League and you have to admire their guile. Some players have shone this year and there will be a lot of movement in and out at Bloomfield road, let’s have a look at who will be leaving:


Charlie Adam

Charlie Adam has had a great season showing what he can do against the very best. Adam has a potent weapon in the shape of his left foot, he has scored free kicks and shown a wide range of passing this year to illustrate that he belongs in the Premier League. He had a return of 13 goals and those type of figures will attract most Premier League sides. Adam nearly moved to Spurs in January on the final day of the transfer window, but they could not complete the paperwork. It looks as though he will defiantly leave this summer, but will his destination be London or elsewhere? A lot probably depends on where Scott Parker ends up, but no doubt you will see Adam in the top flight next season-a bid of around £7-£9m should secure his services.

Possible moves: Liverpool, Spurs, Aston Villa, Everton

David Vaughan

In the Blackpool midfield this season Charlie Adam’s may have stolen the headlines but it was the diminutive David Vaughan that stole the show. Vaughan was the engine of the Blackpool midfield and worked tirelessly for the team, the Blackpool fans know how good he has been. His performances have been top draw this season in his first year in the Premiership and he should be pleased with himself. Rumours started regarding Vaughan as soon as Blackpool’s fate was sealed and there is no doubt the talented midfielder will be on the move.

Possible moves: Sunderland, Everton, WBA, Rangers

DJ Campbell

Dudley Junior has had a great season up front for Blackpool, really showing what he can do against the best defenders in the league. At 29 years old it looks like Campbell is starting to peak and had a good return of 13 goals in 31 appearances this year for the relegated side. DJ has proven he knows where the net is and his movement and work-rate has pulled defences around all year. A few will be looking at him, especially as he has a relegation release clause that will allow him to move on the cheap.

Possible moves: Sunderland or Norwich
