Skysports.com understands Blackpool have made a bid to sign Barnsley's highly-rated winger Adam Hammill.
The 22-year-old has been one of the most impressive performers in the Championship this season and has weighed in with eight goals for Barnsley.
He was recently linked with a £2million move to Everton and Tykes boss Mark Robins expressed his hope that Hammill would stay at Oakwell.
Hammill has also previously intimated that he would see out the season with Barnsley, but Blackpool are ready to test the Tykes' resolve.
It is understood that the Premier League's surprise packages have made an offer to bring Hammill back to Bloomfield Road.
The former Liverpool youngster spent the first half of the 2008/09 season with Blackpool and made 23 appearances during Simon Grayson's time in charge.
Current Seasiders boss Ian Holloway has already made several astute signings in recent months and is now weighing up a move to add Hammill to his squad.
