Blackpool won’t be landing striker Mathias Ranegie, Vital understand.

The Swedish international moved to Malmo yesterday after his former club Hacken rejected a £800,000 bid from the Seasiders last week.

It was reported that they wanted nearer to £1m.

The main options up front are now Jason Scotland and Daniel Bogdanovic with one expected to sign before the 11pm deadline.

Ranegie began his career in Sweden, but soon moved to France to be with his father where he began playing amateur football for Levallois.

In 2005 he returned to Sweden, signing for Majorna before moving onto Lärje/Angered. It was his form here – where he smashed 25 goals in just 22 league games – that caught the interest of IFK Goteborg.

However, he struggled at IFK, scoring just once before a loan move to Go Ahead Eagles and a permanent move to Hacken, where he seems to have regained his goalscoring touch.

He has two caps for Sweden, scoring one goal (against Syria).
