Blackpool are not ruling out a renewed attempt to sign Barnet winger Albert Adomah after missing out on a deadline day deal.
Adomah has been a long-term target for Blackpool boss Ian Holloway and was the subject of an offer in the region of £200,000.
Barnet rejected the bid for the 21-year-old, who has also been linked with Norwich and Watford, but appear prepared to sell at the right price.
And Blackpool secretary Matt Williams has confirmed the Championship club remain interested in bringing Adomah to Bloomfield Road.
"It has been well documented that (Adomah) has been one of Ollie's targets all summer and the manager sees him as a player who would add something to the squad," Williams told the Blackpool Gazette.
"(Chairman) Karl (Oyston) has spoken to his counterpart at Barnet a number of times and they value him slightly higher than we do.
"It didn't happen yesterday, but it might be something we do on loan at a later date and have a permanent deal agreed for January.
"So it's a 'watch this space' on that one."
