Peter Halmosi has turned down a move to Premier League outfit Blackpool for Hungarian club Szombathelyi Haladas.
Pool boss Ian Holloway had made a concrete offer for the 31-year-old former Hull City star.
However, following a successful loan spell for his hometown club towards the back end of last season, the player has decided to return to Hungary on a free transfer, although his agent believes he could yet still make a dramatic U-turn.
Halmosi told Haladas' official website: "I decided to accept the offer from Haladas on Tuesday morning.
"I said 'yes'. But I still haven't signed the contract because there is a small detail we have yet to agree about. When it is done, I will sign immediately."
However, Halmosi's agent, Vladan Filipovic revealed that business is still not done. "He's devoted to Haladas but the chance to play in the Premier League, of course, would be an enormous possibility.
"And, of course it can also be a decisive point that after being ignored during his time at Hull, he could prove his abilities once again.
"I hadn't envisaged that after Hull paid £2.5million for him, he would only play 12 games within two years. Now it's a better situation.
"It wouldn't be sure that he could be a first-team regular but he would get much more time in the Blackpool team."
