Newcastle United striker Nile Ranger's proposed move to Blackpool is back on according to

The 20-year-old previously turned down an opportunity to move to Bloomfield Road after the two clubs reached agreement over a fee.

However, after being overlooked in all of Newcastle's opening four matches this season, Ranger will now reconsider a move away from St. James' Park.

Magpies boss Alan Pardew used Ranger sparingly last season - making 23 substitute appearances in the Barclays Premier League, and with his chances of regular first-team football failing to improve this year, his future may be better served away from Newcastle.


Tangerines boss Ian Holloway is keen to add a couple more faces before the close of the transfer window tomorrow, and having lost last year's star striker DJ Campbell, the Seasiders are keen to replenish their forward line with the addition of Ranger.

Newcastle themselves are in the market for a new striker to fill the boots of the departed Andy Carroll, who swapped St. James' Park for Anfield in January.

It is understood that Ranger will only be allowed to leave if the Magpies successfully make another acquisition of their own, or else Ranger may have to face another season on the fringes of the Newcastle first-team squad.
