Varney targets Blackpool return

The forward scored five goals in 30 Premier League appearances for

Blackpool after joining from Derby and particularly impressed

during the first half of the campaign. He has a year remaining on

his contract at Derby and is again expected to be allowed to leave

Pride Park over the summer. Varney is unsure whether Blackpool will

make a bid to re-sign him, but would not hesitate to link up with

Ian Holloway’s side in the future. “I spoke to the gaffer briefly

after the final game against Manchester United and told him that if

there was ever an opportunity to come back, I’d snap his hand off,”

said Varney in the Blackpool Gazette. “You never know in football.

Even if there was a case of me coming back on loan, I’d definitely

embrace that. “It is a place I know and if two clubs came in for me

and a decision had to be made, I’d choose Blackpool straightaway.”
