Ian Holloway has pledged his commitment to Blackpool following speculation over his future

Ian Holloway insists he is happy to stay at Blackpool as speculation continues over his future.

Holloway was linked with the manager's job at Swansea before Michael Laudrup's appointment last week, while he is also thought to be on Birmingham's radar.

However, he told The Sun: "There has been a lot of speculation regarding my future over the summer so I would like to assure Blackpool's fans that I am planning to be back at pre-season training on July 9 - and I can't wait to get started.

"I can't say it's not been flattering to see my name linked to a couple of Premier League jobs over the summer because it proves I am still doing things right.

"But if the Tangerine Army are worried my head has been turned, they can forget it.

"In the month since we lost the play-off final, I have recharged my batteries.

"I have a few plans I'd like to see come to fruition. And if I can get my way, with two or three new recruits, I am sure we will once again be punching above our weight."
