No Seasiders move for Riera

11 Jul 2008 - 09:49:19

Blackpool have ended their interest in Arnau Riera after the on-trial Sunderland midfielder revealed a desire to return to Spain.

Riera, 26, spent three days with the Championship club but, after failing to make a single senior appearance for the Premier League side during the past two seasons, is keen to return home to kick-start his career.

"Arnau came to see me after training on Wednesday," manager Simon Grayson told the club's official website.

"He told me that he had enjoyed his three days with us, but he explained that he wanted to return to Spain to find a club.

"I am sure he will have no problems in doing that as the lad does have ability.

"I would like to thank him for his honesty and his effort during the last few days with us."
