The 32-year-old Republic of Ireland international is out-of-contract at Coventry this summer and is due to hold talks with boss Mark Robins, his former manager at the Sky Blues.

It is rumoured Bennett could yet return to the club in a coaching capacity.

The 25-year-old is out-of-contract at Bloomfield Road this summer but fellow Championship side Bolton Wanderers are also interested in the Northern Irish international.

Also another link with Blackpool is that coach Steve Thompson is rumoured to become Robins' assistant.

Dublin-born Murphy has also played for Tranmere Rovers, West Brom, Sunderland and Scunthorpe United.
