Brett Pitman’s dream move to the Premiership could be in tatters, through sheer greed.

The Bournemouth striker, who scored a hat-trick at the weekend, was in Blackpool yesterday to discuss personal terms and have a medical.

Both were believed to have been agreed, with the 22-year-old set for wages six times his Cherries packet.

The Seasiders were reported to have been paying around £600,000 for Pitman’s services.

But it has emerged from a reliable source at Bloomfield Road that between passing his medical and signing the forms needed, Pitman (probably in conjunction with his agent) demanded an extra £2k a week – something ‘Pool weren’t prepared to offer.

All this comes after Karl Oyston stepped down as Chairman, after having a testing summer with agents.

It has been said that a deal could still be done, but it’s just yet another transfer which looks set to rumble on.
