DJ Campbell has begged Leicester not to foil his chances of moving to newly-promoted Blackpool this summer.
Campbell has played a significant part in the Seasiders' rise to the top flight this season, scoring 11 goals in his 18 appearances for Ian Holloway's side this campaign.
And the striker has pleaded with his current employers not to scupper any potential move.
'What happens next? I can't answer that yet, but I had a little word with the gaffer after Saturday's game and he wants to sign me. I want to come, so it is just a case of hoping Leicester don't do something silly.
'But everyone in Blackpool knows how much I love the club - I wouldn't have come back otherwise.
'We'll see what happens during the summer but I have been so happy to be at Blackpool during the second half of the season. I love the club. I love everybody, all the players and the gaffer.'
Right, DJ. It's definitely a case of us not doing something silly, you've got that absolutely spot on. It's not like we've tried to move you on before or anything is it?
Oh yes that's right, it was your refusal to take a wage cut in the first place which is the reason you're not already a Blackpool player.
And now with Blackpool in the Premier League, suddenly the idea of a wage cut is something you're prepared to do - miraculous.
Whilst some fans of City still harbour the belief that Campbell's goals at Blackpool could see him play a role for the Foxes next season, most still remain unconvinced.
For my two cents, he's never done it here for us and never will. He wants to leave, so let him. It's time him and his obscene wages took themselves off our books and up to the seaside.
