Robbie Blake turned down the offer of a new contract with Burnley in midweek after seeking a straight two-year deal.

Brian Laws had offered a one year contract with an option to extend for 12 months subject to appearances but Blake spurned the offer.

Laws though did leave the door open if Blake decided to change his mind.

Now it would appear that Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is set for talks with Blake which could see him return immediatly to the Premier League.

It would appear Blake does not want to to sign for another club in the same division as the Clarets which rules out Preston North End who are believed to have made an unsuccessful attempt to lure him to Deepdale.

SPL club,Hearts were also linked but Blake would surely find it hard to turn down any offer which could see him playing in the English top flight again next season.
