There could be a Bloomfield Road departure this month, with Slask Wroclaw considering a deal for Daniel Gretarsson, as WroclawskieFakty reported in Poland.
The defender is signed on to play for the Seasiders until the end of the current campaign, but with no new deals on the table yet, he could leave for free this summer.
This means that a deal could be struck at a low price this month if Blackpool is willing to cash it in now rather than letting it go for nothing. There certainly appears to be an interest in his services, with Slask Wroclaw supposedly wanting to recruit him.
Quiz: Can you name which club Blackpool FC recruited these 28 midfielders from?
He has played in England and has second and third tier experience, but has only managed three league games for them so far this campaign. Prior to his move to Bloomfield Road, he also racked up a lot of playing time in Norway with Aalesund. With over 60 games in this division as well, he has a lot of experience to draw on.
Now, with playing time hard to find at the Seasiders, he could be set to leave England to play abroad again. Poland could be his next destination, with Wroclaw ready to do business.
They are currently in tenth place in the Ekstraklasa table and the addition of the 26-year-old midway through the season with his level of experience could help them get started in the rest of the campaign.
If he can’t act in Blackpool and Neil Critchley has no plans to keep him, then a deal could certainly be the right move for all parties.
Daniel Gretarsson doesn’t look like a bad player in England by any means and when he played in League One he looked pretty solid at the club.
The issue with the player was a number of injuries that kept him out and ultimately he couldn’t get on the pitch and play. With only three league games so far this season, he cannot play regularly on the pitch and it might be better served to look elsewhere.
A move to Poland and Wroclaw would undoubtedly allow him to have more action – and that could allow him to continue his development by getting more playing time and potentially becoming a really solid defender.
At the moment, he can’t do that while sitting on the bench in Bloomfield Road. That means he may have to come out the back door this month to become the player he can be.
