The Seasiders, currently defying pre-season expectations to top the Championship, made three acquisitions on transfer deadline day - defender Bradley Orr, striker Nathan Tyson and Dutch midfielder Marvin Zeegelaar while, crucially, they kept hold of the highly-rated forward Thomas Ince.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez labelled the fact the window was still open in August "a footballing circus" and Paul Ince concedes all parties involved would benefit were it to close prior to the season beginning.

"The transfer window is always hard," he told the Blackpool Gazette.

"It wasn't too bad for me on deadline day but it was a tough one for Matt Williams, our secretary.

"He did a lot of running around trying to do deals and get paperwork done. It's a manic time, and it's not good.

"All the chaos needs to be done before the season to stop all this madness.

"I think it's unfair on players as they are expected to make a decision on going to a new club in a matter of hours. It simply needs to be done before the season starts."
