Blackpool striker Burgess on Pearson's wish list?

Blackpool striker Burgess on Pearson's wish list?

Blackpool striker Ben Burgess could be the man to fill Iain Hume's shoes as he is being linked with a move to Leicester, with Leeds thought to be rivalling us for his signature.

Burgess, 25, helped keep Blackpool in the Championship last season but the feeling is that Simon Grayson, who could've been our gaffer had thing worked out differently, is willing to let him leave for around £200,000.

He has experience of football at this level, so could be a welcome addition, but would he score the goals that would be needed to get us promoted? That isn't something I am so sure about.
