Blackpool FC wants Onismor Bhasera
PLYMOUTH Argyle left-back Onismor Bhasera has been lined up for a move to Premier League club Blackpool.
The Zimbabwe international is set to spend the rest of the season on loan to Blackpool, with a view to a permanent transfer in the summer.
Blackpool's former Argyle manager Ian Holloway has swooped for Bhasera after Championship outfit Crystal Palace stalled on a deal to buy him.
Bhasera, 24, was in Blackpool yesterday to hold talks about a switch to the Seasiders.
They will pay a loan fee to financially-stricken Argyle to take him until the end of the season.
Bhasera was signed as a free agent by Argyle last March after they successfully appealed against a decision to refuse him a work permit.
He had impressed then Pilgrims' boss Paul Mariner during a trial in January.
Bhasera has made a total of 35 appearances for Argyle, and scored his first goal in the 3-1 win at MK Dons on January 18.
He suffered a knee injury in the same match and was ruled out when the Pilgrims lost 2-0 away to Charlton Athletic last Saturday.
Bhasera has played 15 times for Zimbabwe, including twice this season.
