Paynter set for Blackpool Exit

Leeds United striker Billy Paynter is on the verge of a move to Championship rivals Blackpool.Leeds United manager Neil Warnock has confirmed Paynter has spoken to a 'few clubs' regarding a transfer.Paynter was placed on the transfer list by Warnock at the end of last season and he has scored just three goals in 27 league appearances since his 2010 move from Swindon Town.The 28-year-old had a spell on loan at Brighton & Hove Albion last term and was not involved in Leeds' recent pre-season games against Tavistock and Bodmin.He also left the squad ahead of the friendly against Torquay United to discuss a possible move away from Elland Road and Warnock is waiting to receive a suitable offer."Billy's talked to a few clubs," Warnock told the club's official website. "There's a number after him but it's got to be right for us."Doncaster Rovers have been strongly linked with a bid for Paynter however it is believed that Blackpool have tabled a bid of around £250,000 for the player
