Blackpool manager Ian Holloway admits his bid to sign striker Robbie Fowler could fall through due to financial issues.
The former Liverpool and England frontman is currently training with the Seasiders having most recently spent time plying his trade in Australia and Thailand.
Holloway has previously revealed the 36-year-old is in talks with Pool over a possible contract and could sign until the end of the season.
However, the manager has revealed negotiations have hit a snag due to the striker's cost.
He told The Sun: "If things stay as they are then Robbie won't sign.
"It's not the figure itself, it's how it's split up and how much he's got to play to earn."
