AFC Bournemouth striker Wesley Thomas has been linked with a move to Championship side Blackpool.
The striker previously worked with Blackpool manager Michael Appleton at League One neighbours Portsmouth, where Thomas scored three goals in six appearances during a 28 day loan spell.
Former AFC Bournemouth manager Paul Groves sent Thomas out on loan after the striker had scored just one goal in 22 appearances for the Cherries.
But following Eddie Howe’s return to Dean Court as manager Thomas was recalled from his loan with Howe keen to take a closer look at the former Crawley forward.
His return to the Goldsands Stadium however has been hampered by a hamstring problem, which forced him out of recent games, only returning for a 20 minute cameo appearance away to Doncaster Rovers last week and was not included in the match day squad for either the Oldham or Stevenage games.
The Daily Echo have reported that Thomas has now submitted an official transfer request and is believed to be a target for Championship outfit Blackpool.
