As revealed by skysports.com earlier this week Blackpool were lining up a surprise deal to bring Varney to Bloomfield Road with the player at the club for talks on Thursday.

Varney has dropped out of favour at Derby and Rams boss Nigel Clough is willing to let him move on.

Queens Park Rangers were thought to be leading the chase for Varney, but Blackpool have stolen in to lure the former Crewe man to the Premier League new boys.

Varney is understood to have agreed personal terms and could be available for this weekend's clash with Fulham if he secures his move in time.

The move sees Blackpool boss Ian Holloway finally land a forward after a long search for striking reinforcements.
