We bring you the latest as Blackpool aim to add to their squad ahead of tonight’s transfer deadline.

11pm: WINDOW CLOSED: Blackpool have failed to bring anyone in ahead of the deadline.

10:30pm: With half an hour to go it doesn’t look like any business will be done tonight. The Gazette will remain at Bloomfield Road until 11pm, only club secretary at the club now.

9:15pm: Deadly quiet at Blackpool, would appear the deal for a Championship midfielder won’t be happening.

8.30pm: The only thing to arrive through the doors of Bloomfield Road so far this evening is a pizza for the waiting press. Sadly nothing is live at the moment transfer wise. Secretary Chris Hough remains at the stadium and is in regular contact with Riga and Oyston.

5:45pm: Sadly it would appear progress has slowed at Blackpool, at the moment it’s all gone very quiet.

5:15pm: One player could be heading out of Bloomfield Road on loan tonight, no details as yet.

5pm: Neither Jose Riga or Karl Oyston are at the club or have been at all today. Secretary Chris Hough left to sort the potential deals with Pool’s chairman on the end of a phone.

4:45pm: The bid for the Championship midfielder remains on the table and The Gazette understand it could be for as much as £400,000. Pool are waiting on a reply from the club.

4:30pm: All quiet here at Bloomfield Road, no sign of Jose Riga or any potential new signings.

4pm: Media reports suggest Barnet winger Keanu Marsh-Brown is on Blackpool’s wish-list.

1:45pm - Belgian defender Bryan Verboom apparently tweets he’s on his way to England to sign for Blackpool, the message was removed shortly after. As far as we know there’s nothing in it.

1:15pm - As well as the midfielder, it’s understood a bid is in for a French striker and a Belgian defender.

12:30pm - Blackpool have tabled an official offer for a Championship midfielder in the last hour. Talks were held between Karl Oyston and the club last night before Pool followed it up with a written bid.

The player is yet to be revealed.

11am - Former Blackpool midfielder Angel Martinez is flying over to the UK for talks with Millwall.

10:30am - It’s not just incoming deals which could be happening today at Bloomfield Road, with a number of players linked with moves out of the club.

Enquiries have been made for Steven Davies, Tom Barkhuizen and Charles Dunne.

10am - Blackpool are aiming for as many as three players ahead of this evening’s deadline.

9:30am - Riga says in today’s Gazette he’s ‘in the dark’ about the progress of bids and he’s waiting for news like the rest of us.

9am - Welcome to another transfer deadline day as the Seasiders aim to strengthen after their worst start to the season ever.
