Blackpool VitalFootball understands that the Russian international Vladimir But is in talks with Blackpool FC about a possible move to Bloomfield Road, whilst on trial with the club.
The creative midfielder comes with an excellent pedigree. He won the treble in 1997 with Borussia Dortmund, winning The Champions League, The Weltpokalsieger and The Bundesliga. He also won the Bundesliga in 1999 with Dortmund.
The 29 year old midfielder had a brief lonely spell with the Dortmund reserves, known as Dortmund II. This then followed a move to Freiburg, then to Hannover96 three years later. He has just recently signed for Russian Premier League side Shinnik Jaroslavl. He had scored 25 times in 132 appearances in Germany.
The goalscoring midfielder had apparently been spotted at Bloomfield Road on Tuesday prior to the Carling Cup clash with Barnsley.
Rivals Burnley have also been linked with But, as he went to Turf Moor for a trial.
