Contrary to reports, Watford target Kaspars Gorkss has not left Blackpool after Queens Park Rangers announced a deal had been struck.

The Latvian ace, who has been tracked by Adrian Boothroyd for longer than Q.P.R have been rolling in it, has seen his potential move to London struck off as Blackpool have reported Iain Dowie’s side citing an ‘illegal approach’.

‘I don’t want to say too much about it,’ Blackpool manager Simon Grayson told BBC Radio Lancashire.

‘But we’ve got to protect the interests of our club and we’re led to believe there’s been an illegal approach.’

Grayson added: ‘If anybody approachs our club and offers money then that’s our decision to give permission to talk to players. It was disappointing while I was away to read that Kaspars has already signed for Queens Park Rangers ‘

‘But the matter is now in the FA’s hands. We like to do our football business in the right way and we feel this hasn’t been done


This latest development may well open the door for Boothroyd to jump in an snare the Blackpool rock from right underneath The Hoops noses…we can but hope.
