Blackpool have had a bid for Swansea City’s Spanish right-back Angel Rangel rejected by the Championship club.
Seasiders boss Ian Holloway is seeking to strengthen his squad ahead of their bow in the Premier League, but the Swans are in no mood to part with one of their star performers.
Manager Brendan Rodgers told the club’s official website: “An offer has come in to the chairman from Blackpool for Angel. It has not been accepted.
“The situation is under control and I am due to have a meeting with Angel. I want him to stay and there is an offer of another contract on the table for him.
“There is bound to be interest in him because he’s a quality player. Angel is 27, in the last year of his contract and desperate to play in the Premier League. But so are we.
“We have no need to sell him financially and I think this is the place to be.”
Rangel joined City in the summer of 2007 from Terrassa FC and has since scored three times in 138 appearances in all competitions.
