Negotiations with Robbie Fowler have stalled, says Blackpool boss Ian Holloway
Wednesday 07 March 2012
Blackpool boss Ian Holloway admits talks to bring former England striker Robbie Fowler to Bloomfield Road have hit a stumbling block.
The 36-year-old started training with the npower Championship club last week, with Holloway confident that a deal could be done to bring Fowler back to English football for the first time since 2008.
However, he sounded an altogether more cautious note at a press conference after Tuesday night's defeat to Derby, revealing Fowler - now being linked with a host of Football League clubs - would have to seek his future elsewhere as negotiations stand at present.
"Unless I can get things done and a deal done in a slightly different way, then he won't be coming," said Holloway.
"If it doesn't happen, I'll be disappointed, but such is life."
