Dobbie rules out Pool return

Former loan striker Stephen Dobbie is unlikely to return to Blackpool next season and is preparing for life back at Swansea City.

The 27-year-old netted five goals in 19 appearances to help the Seasiders gain promotion via the play-offs, but Dobbie does not think that a permanent deal will be reached.

He told the Blackpool Gazette:"There was talk of Blackpool wanting me on a permanent move, but I didn't hear anything concrete on that.

"I'm just focused on returning to Swansea for pre-season training. Having experienced the thrill of the play-offs at Blackpool, I want to do the same at Swansea next season.

"It won't be easy, but Blackpool's success proved that you don't need a massive budget to move into the Premier League. And I think we are capable of replicating that success."
