POOL still don’t know whether Paul Anderson will be a Seasider next year.

The winger, a free agent after his contract at Nottingham Forest expired, met Ian Holloway in Blackpool last week to discuss signing a two-year deal.

Discussions went well. The 23-year-old and the manager hit it off and Anderson has been offered terms.

However, he has asked for time to mull over his options before committing himself.

The winger is understood to be away on holiday at present but will announce his decision on his return.

Anderson has been a vital part of Nottingham Forest’s team since joining in a £250,000 deal from Liverpool four years ago.

He is a big crowd favourite at the City Ground and manager Steve Cotterill desperately wants to keep him.

But such is the financial uncertainty hanging over Forest, they can’t afford to offer him a new deal.
