Blackpool offer Bednar new contract

The Seasiders confirm they want the Czech striker to remain at Bloomfield Road, despite enduring an injury-blighted season after joining on a short-term deal in January

Blackpool have offered Roman Bednar a new contract to remain at the club, according to chairman Karl Oyston.

The Czech striker joined the Seasiders on a short-term deal in January but was immediately sidelined after picking up a long-term injury in March's 3-3 draw with Leicester.

But Oyston insists that the best is yet to come from Bednar and has confirmed that there is a contract offer on the table.

"We've spoken to Roman's agent and it's down to him now to decide where his future lies because he's a free agent," Oyston told Blackpool's official website.

"I don't think we particularly saw the best of him, not through any fault of his.

"He came in and he got injured almost immediately after he popped a goal in.

"It would be nice for Roman to come along and join the club for a couple of years to see if he's as good as we all think he is, and I'm sure he is."
