MOTHERWELL winger Jamie Murphy has revealed why he turned down a deadline day £500,000 move to Bloomfield Road.

The 22-year-old, under contract at the SPL club until summer 2013, held deadline day talks with Pool but decided against trying his luck in the Championship.

“Obviously I am flattered by Blackpool’s interest,” said Murphy.

“They are a club with great tradition and are going well in their attempt to get back up to the Premier League, but I just want to focus on the rest of the season now and doing as well as I can for Motherwell.
