Blackpool boss Ian Holloway says he has had "thousands" of players recommended to him but is determined to make the right signings for the club.
Holloway is preparing the Seasiders for their maiden Barclays Premier League campaign after guiding them to promotion last season.
The former Leicester manager is yet to make any additions to his squad this summer, but Holloway insists he is sifting through plenty of offers.
"I feel like a gold prospector," Holloway said. "One of them may be a lump of gold but most won't be.
"I'm being serious when I say we've had thousands, not hundreds, of players recommended to us by agents.
"But although I need players, I won't be launching myself into the transfer market and making crazy signings of overpaid and overrated players. Everyone else has fallen into that trap but I'm not going to."
