Dobbie's Wage Demands Delay Blackpool Move

Blackpool have agreed a fee with Swansea City for attacking midfielder Stephen Dobbie, but his wage demands are delaying a potential move to the Seasiders.

The Scot appears to be surplus to requirements at the Liberty Stadium, but he seems unwilling to take a pay cut to get regular first team football with the Championship club.

According to Holloway, Dobbie believes he can get a better offer elsewhere, but the Swans have not received any other interest for the player.

"We`ve agreed a fee with Swansea but we can`t agree wages with the boy, that`s just the way it is.

"He thinks he`s going to get all sorts of other offer and all sorts of money, and Swansea are telling us he`s not going to.

"They`ve had no other interest so far, so hopefully it will all take care of itself.

"Would I like him? Yes. Would my chairman like him? Yes. But there are certain things we`ll have to go through to get him."


Dobbie has had two influential loan spells under Ian Holloway at Blackpool in the last two years, so it's no surprise why they are keen to sign him permanently.

The Scot scored goals to help their play-off winning campaign in 2010, and he almost experienced the same last season, scoring 5 goals in 7 games, but Blackpool lost against West Ham United in the final at Wembley.

Like under Brendan Rodgers last season, Dobbie looks unlikely to get much game time this year under new manager Michael Laudrup, and it's in everyone's best interests if he completes the move to Blackpool.
