Ryan Hall's future remains unclear after move from Southend United to Blackpool falls through
RYAN Hall’s future remains unclear after the Southend United winger failed to agree a loan switch to Blackpool.
The 24-year-old had been training with the Seasiders ahead of a proposed move to the Championship club.
But Hall has now failed to agree personal terms with Ian Holloway’s side and is currently contemplating his next move.
However, a source close to Blues suggested it was not clear if Hall would be coming back to Roots Hall .
“Everyone just presumed Ryan would be going to Blackpool so this has come as a bit of a shock and nobody really knows what will happen next at this stage,” said the source.
“Whether or not Ryan would want to come back and play in League Two is open to debate but the situation will be discussed by all parties in the next few days before a decision is made.”
No-one was available from the club to comment about the latest developments while Hall himself opted not to talk about his future.
But there are rumours that Peterborough United could be about to renew their interest in the winger, who they tabled a £100,000 bid for at the end of August.
Hall, whose contract runs out at the end of the season, has now not played a first team game for five weeks after Blues boss Paul Sturrock claimed the former Crystal Palace trainee was not in the right frame of mind to play for Southend.
He must now ponder his next move and no deal has yet to be agreed for Blues defender Bilel Mohsni either.
The Frenchman remains on trial with Birmingham City but does not yet know if he will be signing.
“It’s going well for me at Birmingham but I’m unsure what will happen at this stage,” said Mohsni.
“I’m still waiting to hear but I would definitely like to sign for them.”
Mohsni has not played for Southend since the end of last season and did not report back for training at the start of the current campaign.
