Pool to hold on to Phillips?
Highly-rated Blackpool winger Matthew Phillips is being targeted by a number of clubs, including Premier League side Everton.
Blackpool face the tough task of a play-off final with West Ham at Wembley but it may mean more to them than a place in the Premier League.
It is understood that the Toffees are monitoring the progress of Phillips as the Everton boss David Moyes looks to build his team around new front man Nikica Jelavic.
This could be too much temptation for the pacey wide-man if the Tangerines fail to clinch promotion against the Hammers.
Phillips has had a successful season, bagging 18 goals, including six while on loan at Sheffield United, helping the Seasiders secure a play-off position.
Blackpool fought off bids for the 21-year-old from Premier League Bolton Wanderers and Championship rivals Cardiff City.
However, it is believed that Moyes is lining up a £3m swoop for Phillips which may be hard to resist if Blackpool fail to reach the top flight next week.
