The 34-year-old wants to leave Bloomfield Road for first-team football and after a mooted move to Birmingham fell through, he is set for talks over a surprise short-term switch to Fleetwood.

Following talks between Blackpool boss Ian Holloway and chairman Karl Oyston, Ferguson has been told he will be granted a move.

Holloway told The Blackpool Gazette: "We are hopeful he will go on a short-term loan to our local neighbours. My chairman dealt with it in a really good way.

"And we've come to a really good solution. It was the chairman's idea the resolution, and it looks like it will be a good resolution for everyone.

"He'll go on a short term loan and Karl has said he can have a free, that's a big statement for a player he spent £750,000 on."

Fleetwood boss Micky Mellon added: "There is still a lot needed to be done before it happens, but I have spoken to Ian Holloway - now I need to speak to Barry Ferguson to see how he feels (about coming to Fletwood on loan).

"Obviously, when a player of that calibre may be available, you have to be interested."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
