Ex-Leicester City and Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has conceded defeat to the permanent signing of Foxes striker DJ Campbell.
The forward spent four months on loan with the Seasiders last season, scoring 9 times in 20 appearances in a successful spell with the team.
And now it is believed that Blackpool have had an offer accepted for the 27-year-old signed from Birmingham City for £1.6m in the summer of 2007.
Despite this, manager Ian Holloway has admitted that the chances of signing the striker are extremely slim due to the gulf in wages. Holloway told the Leicester Mercury, 'I know what DJ's wages are now and I can't see us getting him in a million years, but 'never give up' is my motto. He enjoyed it here at Blackpool, but it all depends on how he is thought of at Leicester now they have gone up'
The situation is clear that Campbell is surplus to requirements with Nigel Pearson's men, but Campbell remains the top earner at the club, a lasting mistake from the Martin Allen era. And now it appears that Campbell's wage demands may put off any potential suitors looking to bring the striker on board.
Campbell himself admitted himself that his future does not lie at Leicester, declaring earlier in the season, 'I don't want to go back to Leicester - anything apart from that.' Most Leicester fans would be happy to see the want-away striker leave the club this summer, but ultimately, Campbell's wage demands may just scupper any future move.
