Holloway closes in on new signings

28 Jul 2010 - 12:20:43

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway believes Premier League reinforcements are close to joining the club.

Holloway has yet to add a single new player to his first-team squad following last season's promotion via the Championship play-off final.

This week the Seasiders boss has met with his chairman to discuss transfer moves and Holloway believes new signings are now close.

"I'm very optimistic that some of these things now, the bait that we're throwing in the water, might get a bite," he told the club's official website.

"After that meeting we've offered two things that people actually asked for, in the way that they asked for it, so for me that's close to completion.

"We've now got the problem of dealing with the players and their contracts. We're getting closer and closer to some of the names that I want.

"I'm trying to get quality and I'm being supported totally and utterly all the way through."
