Blackpool remain hopeful they can do a deal to sign Paul Caddis.

The Seasiders agreed a fee for the Swindon full-back earlier this week, only for the deal to stall yesterday over personal terms.

But Pool boss Paul Ince has revealed talks are still on going.

“We agreed a fee with Swindon and now it’s down to the chairman and the agent to sort out a financial package,” said Ince.

“I think we’ve offered him a very good deal considering he’s come from League One.

“I thought the deal was done, but they’ve come back and think they are worth a little bit more.

“I can’t do anything about that, I don’t have the purse strings, I don’t pay the money.”

Ince used Chris Basham at right-back in last night’s game against Witton Albion, and also looked at three triallists.

Neal Bishop, former Brighton midfielder Gary Dicker and Hearts’ Danny Granger all took part.

And Ince hopes to add Caddis to that list.

He said: “At the end of the day the lad has to want to come and play for the club.

“I’ve left it with the chairman, but I can’t afford to wait too long.

“If he isn’t going to come I need to move on.”
