Relegated Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is set for talks with Tangerines chairman Karl Oyston, to discuss the club's plans moving forward as they bid for an immediate return to the Barclays Premier League.

Holloway is keen to sit down with Oyston to discuss how best to use the £14million the club will receive in parachute payments following relegation from the top flight.

"I have a year on my contract and I am looking forward to talking to the chairman and seeing what he wants to do with where his club was, where it is now and where we have gone back to.

"I am hoping that it is not going back as far as it might have been before we started this season," Holloway continued.

"I have to sit down with Karl and talk about what he wants to do with this football club.


"I am very proud to have worked with him and I'll be very proud to work with him again if he wants to work with me. We've all got to talk about where we think the club needs to go and where he thinks it needs to go."

The Blackpool boss is resigned to losing some of his key players, and is preparing for the break-up of his relegated squad. But he wants assurances that the finances will be made available to challenge for promotion again next season.

"Our structure is nowhere near where I want it to be or where it needs to be, but unfortunately we got catapulted into it last year and we've had to do the very best we could.

"My job is to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear but this is the best sow's ear I've ever worked with. I have to dust myself down and go back to work."
