ROB Hulse remains on Blackpool’s radar but won’t be going anywhere for a few weeks.

The QPR striker, who would welcome a loan move after being left out of Rangers 25-man Premier League squad, has strained a medial knee ligament and won’t be fit until the end of September.

Hulse’s agent Matt Buck said: “I would say it is likely that Rob will go on loan when he is fit, and it will be a Championship loan due to the regulations.

“He is aware of interest from some clubs but we haven’t spoken in detail about which club he would like to go to.”

Pool boss Ian Holloway tried to land Hulse on deadline day but missed out.

But while many were focusing on the disappointment of a quiet deadline day, Holloway immediately switched his attention to the loan market.

The boss said: “There will be hundreds of Premier League players left out of 25-man squads who we can go in for. We’ll go bish-bash-bosh and get a few signed up.”

Holloway is chasing several attackers and hopes to make signings over the coming weeks. If he is still short at the end of the month, he could go back in for Hulse, though he’ll have to fight off Leeds, Millwall and Reading, who are also chasing the striker.
