Chairman Oyston and manager Ian Holloway are looking to reconstruct their squad in order to push the Tangerines back into the Premier League following last month’s relegation.
“We always assemble a squad each summer, we have done it for the 12 years I’ve been here,” Oyston told the Blackpool Gazzette.
“Anyone who thinks you have a week of making ten phone calls and ten players turn up and agree personal terms in five minutes, have a medical and sign is naive in the extreme. It doesn’t work like that.
“It’s more like a game of poker. The player asks for a certain amount of money and certain terms, and the agent tells you they’ve been offered certain amounts of money and certain terms, which sometimes is a big fib.”
Oyston commented that he hopes the squad, containing up to ten new members, would boast “better players than we have ever [approached] before”.
