Blackpool are said to be looking at the possibility of going back in for Dundee United midfielder Jeando Fuchs, as per a recent report by The Sun on Sunday.
The Seasiders are said to have seen a summer move fall through for the 23-year-old Cameroonian international, however it appears that Neil Critchley and co aren’t willing to give up the fight just yet.
Dundee are said to have demanded a large transfer fee for their player which ultimately saw the Sky Bet Championship side drop their interest towards the end of the window.
However with Fuchs having now entered the final 12 months of his contract at Tannadice Park, Blackpool will be confident of striking a deal in January for the player, with the Scottish side being more likely to cash in then rather than lose him on a free over the summer.
Quiz: Do you remember which player scored Blackpool’s first goal in each of the last 15 seasons?
Fuchs has played 33 times for the Scottish Premiership side so far and originally signed from Alaves in Spain.
This was a signing that Blackpool were desperate to get over the line, however they fell short in the end due to Dundee insisting that they play a high fee.
Moving back in for Fuchs in January would make a lot of sense if Critchley feels they still need him and it will be interesting to see if the player himself would be keen on the move.
He would add some extra steel to a midfield that has sometimes appeared venerable at times this season and by that point he will also have just six months left on his contract, which means he could be picked up for a much lower fee.
It will certainly be interesting to see if Blackpool feel they need another central midfield player by that point and a lot of their transfer plans are sure to depend on their league position at that stage of the season.
