Holloway in dark over Vaughan

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway admits he is in the dark about what the future holds for David Vaughan.

The club are hoping to re-sign the Wales midfielder, who is out of contract in the summer, and an offer has been made.

However Holloway knows that given Vaughan's good form there could be bids for him in the January transfer window, and he said: "I have spoken to David and I need to talk to my chairman and see where we are. I don't know where that is going to go. What he might get somewhere else and what we might pay him might be a difficult scenario."

He added: "He is an incredible player and a wonderful person. I am very fortunate to have him here. I would like that to be a long time.

"David is a joy to work with. Every day is exactly the same. There is quality, left foot, right foot. He hardly ever does anything that is sub-standard.

"He is playing so well - I wish him well whatever happens, whatever way it goes."

Blackpool have made a bright start to their debut Premier League season and face Bolton on Saturday on the back of a win over Wolves.

Former Leicester boss Holloway admits he has been "brought back to life" at Bloomfield Road.

He said: "I think the whole country is buying in to what is happening here. They keep looking at our unique colour (tangerine), the way the lads are playing and the goals they are scoring.

"It is just great because they are genuine people here and they have brought me back to life. I am absolutely loving it."
