Matt Phillips: Had big season with Blackpool last season
A host of clubs are ready to make a move for Blackpool winger Matt Phillips, Sky Sports understands.
The Tangerines look to have a battle on their hands to hang on to their exciting winger as Everton, Wigan, Aston Villa, Sunderland and Reading all weigh up potential bids.
The 21-year-old had an outstanding campaign last term for Blackpool scoring seven league goals and was one of the main reasons they made it to the play-off final.
Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is desperate to keep hold of his wing stars in Phillips and team-mate Thomas Ince - but he could have a battle on his hands.
Everton are reported to be in pole position, but it is understood a number of their Premier League rivals are also very keen on landing the Scotland international.
