Stephen Dobbie has returned to Crystal Palace after talks to extend his loan at Blackpool broke down.

The 31-year-old was desperate to stay at Bloomfield Road until the end of the season and a deal looked to be in place last weekend.

But despite further talks between Pool chairman Karl Oyston and the south London club, no deal has materialised and the striker could feature for the Eagles in Saturday’s all-Premier League FA Cup clash with West Brom.

Pool are expected to hold further talks next week in the hope of re-signing Dobbie.
