Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston says he will not stand in manager Ian Holloway's way if a big club come in for him.
The Tangerines narrowly missed out on winning promotion back to the Premier League earlier this month following their play-off final defeat to West Ham.
And although Oyston is keen to hold on to his manager, he believes Holloway's achievements are so deserving of a move he
would even "load him in a car and give him a lift".
"For us to view ourselves and be viewed by our competitors as a strong Championship club and a realistic contender aiming for the play-offs and promotion, how far have we come since Ian joined the club? It is nearly unbelievable," Oyston said.
"I think it is highly important that the manager is happy, that he feels he has a fair deal that reflects what he has achieved for this football club and what we hope he will continue to achieve for this club.
"We've got to treat Ian fairly, and reflect his value, importance and contribution to the football club. Ian is a very fair-minded man and he needs us to be fair with him.
"That is why if some bigger club wants to take Ian, then I think I'd be the first one to load him in a car and give him a lift.
"I've told him that. I think he has deserved that and I'd be amazed if other clubs don't look at him."
