Holloway in no transfer panic

13 Jul 2010 - 13:02:55

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway will not rush into making new signings ahead of their first season in the Premier League.

Holloway has revealed he has been inundated with calls and requests from agents to take a look at 'thousands' of players since winning the Championship play-off final in May.

The Seasiders boss has yet to sign any new players but, despite the Premier League season now being just four weeks away, he is refusing to rush his player recruitment programme.

He said: "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.

"I am going to take my time, work with my chairman and try to get some real good people in to help my lads, who were so fantastic last season."
