Ian Holloway is bracing himself for player exits from Bloomfield Road this summer.

The Tangerines find themselves in a Barclays Premier League relegation scrap, and despite being written off by many pundits before the start of the season are still in with a chance of survival.

However, question marks remain over a number of players, and with several out of contract and Charlie Adam on the radar of a string of top clubs, keeping his squad together could depend on survival for the former Leicester City boss.

"I've had a look at who is out of contract, who has an option and who definitely won't be here. Unless we stay up or improve what we've offered them, we may lose some of them," Holloway told The Sun.

"I'm chilled about it but I've had a look around and done some research. If we get extra cash for staying up, it may change the dynamics."


Matt Gilks, David Vaughan and Stephen Crainey are three regulars who could make a free exit in the summer, and picking up points in their remaining games could be pivotal for Blackpool.

Stoke are the visitors this weekend, with a trip to Spurs, clash against Bolton and final day showdown at Old Trafford in the pipeline for Holloway's side.
