Holloway doesn't expect DJ return

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway believes his odds on re-signing DJ Campbell are as long as on him becoming a drag queen.

DJ Campbell: Not set for Blackpool return

Striker Campbell has enjoyed three separate spells at Blackpool in recent seasons, scoring 36 goals in 72 appearances before joining QPR last summer in a £1.2million deal.

The 30-year-old, however, found himself on the fringes of Mark Hughes' squad, which had raised Holloway's hopes of luring him back to Bloomfield Road for a fourth time.

But Campbell's excessive wages have scuppered any move, as Holloway said:

"I don't think there's a chance in a million years we'll be able to do a deal to get DJ back.

"Because of how much they are paying him at the moment at QPR, it's not going to happen.

"We are about as close to re-signing DJ Campbell as there is of me wearing high heels and calling myself Sheila."

Speaking to the Blackpool Gazette, a saddened Holloway added: "I do apologise, I'd have loved to have brought DJ back."
